Some Preventive Trials include

  • Washing Practice

 • Topical Corticosteroid Agents

 • Nonsteroidal Topical Creams

 • Avoiding unnecessary exposure to radiation.

 • Persons working in Radiation Hazard areas should wear badges to measure their exposure level.

 • Protective shields should always be placed over the parts of the body not being treated or studied during x-ray imaging tests or Radiation Therapy.
