The amount of radiation to which you will be exposed is relatively small (for example, less than the amount from 3 chest x-rays). Such doses of radiation may be potentially harmful, but the risks are so small that they are difficult to measure. If you have already had many x-rays, you should discuss this with the researchers before agreeing to be in the study.

Or:

As a result of participating in the study, you will receive a significant amount of radiation. The amount is similar to that received in many standard procedures that use x-rays (such as a cardiac catheterization), but is far more than you would receive from natural daily exposure or in the normal course of treatment, and carries at least a theoretical risk. If you are especially concerned with radiation exposure, you should discuss this with the researchers.
