Computed Tomography Urography: Comparison of Image Quality and Radiation Dose between Single- and Split-Bolus Techniques.

In this study, we aimed to compare the split-bolus and single-bolus computerised tomography (CT) urography and determine if this offers a reduction in radiation dose without compromising image quality...

Projection X-ray Imaging: Radiography, Mammography, Fluoroscopy.

Recent advances in digital detector technology for medical radiography and fluoroscopy have resulted in improved workflow efficiency, operational flexibility, image quality, and diagnostic accuracy. T...

Effectiveness of using low rate fluoroscopy to reduce an examiner's radiation dose during lumbar nerve root block.

Long-term exposure to radiation can lead to gene mutations and increase the risk of cancer. Low rate fluoroscopy has the potential to reduce the radiation exposure for both the examiner and the patien...

Evaluation of Radiation Dose and Image Quality using High-Pitch 70-kV Chest CT in Immunosuppressed Patients.

 The aim of the study was to evaluate high-pitch 70-kV CT examinations of the thorax in immunosuppressed patients regarding radiation dose and image quality in comparison with 120-kV acquisition.

Ultra-low dose CT colonography with automatic tube current modulation and sinogram-affirmed iterative reconstruction: Effects on radiation exposure and image quality.

To assess the radiation dose and image quality of ultra-low dose (ULD)-CT colonography (CTC) obtained with the combined use of automatic tube current (mAs) modulation with a quality reference mAs of 2...

Impact of Low Dose Fluoroscopy in Ureteroscopy

One of the most effective strategies to decrease radiation exposure during ureteroscopy is to use low dose. However, the quality of the image obtained is inferior to full dose image. The m...

Impact of Low Frame Rate Fluoroscopy and Cine-angiography on Reducing Operator and Patient Dose

The investigators sought to investigate the efficacy of low frame rate (fluoroscopy at 7.5 frames per second (FPS) and Cine at 10 pulse per second (PPS) vs. conventional (15 FPS and 15 PPS...

Evaluation of Exposure Reduction Using Region-of-Interest Fluoroscopy (X-ray Fovea Imaging) in Cardiac Interventions

The aim of the proposed study is to compare the exposure dose and diagnostic performance of region-of-interest fluoroscopy compared to standard fluoroscopy in patients and interventionists...

Image Fusion of SPECT MPI and Fluoroscopy Venography to Guide LV Lead Placement for Improved CRT Response (GUIDE-CRT II)

CRT response will be significantly better using image fusion of SPECT MPI and fluoroscopy venogram to guide LV lead placement at the latest activation segment without scar than standard-of...

IPM Procedures With or Without Fluoroscopy: Outcome Comparison

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The amount of radiation energy that is deposited in a unit mass of material, such as tissues of plants or animal. In RADIOTHERAPY, radiation dosage is expressed in gray units (Gy). In RADIOLOGIC HEALTH, the dosage is expressed by the product of absorbed dose (Gy) and quality factor (a function of linear energy transfer), and is called radiation dose equivalent in sievert units (Sv).

Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

The relationship between the dose of administered radiation and the response of the organism or tissue to the radiation.

Production of an image when x-rays strike a fluorescent screen.
