CDC Highlights Naloxone and Imaging Using Radiation

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is highlighting two health care issues: 1) naloxone; and 2) imaging using radiation.  CDC notes that naloxone can be given safely to people of all ages, from infants to older adults.  CDC also notes that ionizing radiation is used in health care procedures to help providers find causes of symptoms (diagnostics) and to manage or treat health conditions.  To read the CDC highlights on naloxone, use the first link below.  To read the CDC highlights on imaging using radiation, use the second link below.
