She explained in detail the use of radiation in hospitals, radiotherapy, and how it is done in punching labs etc. She said that one should do an X-ray of the patient with honesty, emotion and evidence with care and confidence so that both benefits and risks can be balanced. She added that radiation can cause two types of effects. One person may be affected immediately or in future generations. It all depends on the radiation whether the radiation was applied at once or gradually.
