Hospital title: 
Radiation Safety Manager

Christian Janicki is the Radiation Safety Manager. His research focuses on the effect of radiation on restenosis and use of radioactive coils for aneurysm embolization. 

Radiation exposure from medical sources (e.g. CT scans, dental X-Rays) may increase the risk of cancer for children according to recent studies. Janicki is reviewing the literature and the risk model hypothesis (LNT) in an effort to better inform the patients and public about the true risk-benefit ratio of medical X-Rays for children.
