In terms of radiation dose, what is the major difference between medical diagnostic uses of radiation and medical therapeutic uses?

To determine

The major difference between medical diagnostic uses of radiation and medical therapeutic uses, in terms of radiation dose.

Explanation

Introduction:

The energy emitted by the sub-atomic particles is termed as radiation. It travels in the form of energy or particles or as energized particle. In the medical diagnostic the use of radiation has been adopted in frequent ways to cure as the both diagnostic tool and therapeutic tool for treating harmful cell of human being which cause cancer.

In some medical diagnostics, the radiations are often used in many ways such as X-rays, Gamma rays and the other forms of ionizing radiation to cure the certain kinds of cancer but in medical therapeutic the radiation has been used to destroy some cells of a body. The use of radiation procedures in diagnosis may contribute a appropriate dose of ionizing radiation in human life but the inherent properties of ionizing energized radiations causes potential harm to a human body. Such high-energized radiations destroy cancer cells and shrink tumors.

Conclusion:

Thus, we can conclude that the medical therapeutic kill the specific and weaken cells of a human body and whereas in the prospective of doctors, the medical diagnostic has been more recommended as it takes very minute radiation dose and dangerous for a human body.
