I'm an American expat living in Korea, and I wanted to get your advice on the series of x-rays I was administered here. I'm a 40-year-old male, six-foot tall,  and  went to see a doc at a university hospital about my lower back pain. He prescribed a full-spine x-ray (comprising of three images) for sclorisis, and a series of lumbar spine x-rays for the back pain (four views). Nothing was found, and all this seems like too much radiation exposure for me. Should I be worried?
