1 Gy (10 rad). Doses delivered to the embryo or fetus during ﬂuoroscopically guided interventional procedures and during the course of radiation therapy may be higher. Preconception ionizing radiation risks There is no convincing direct evidence of heritable disease in the offspring of humans attributable to ionizing radiation, yet radiation clearly induces mutations in microbes and somatic cells of rodents and humans, and transgenerational effects in irradiated drosophila and mice are established.
A woman should have at least ﬁve of these symptoms, including either depressed mood and/or diminished interest, most of the time for 2 weeks. If a woman has a history of manic/hypomanic episodes as well as MDEs, she suffers from bipolar disorder but is presenting in the depressed phase.

The detection of isolated minor markers in lower-risk patients from the general population will likely have minimal impact on an already low background risk of aneuploidy. To objectively counsel patients following the prenatal diagnosis of a minor sonographic marker, likelihood ratios can be used to create a more precise risk assessment for the patient that their fetus might be affected with trisomy 21.
