Clinical procedures that make use of fluoroscopy may expose patients as well as the clinical staff (throughout their career) to non-negligible doses of radiation. The potential consequences of such ex...
To optimise the radiation dose and image quality for chest radiography in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) by increasing the mean beam energy.
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...
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.
To assess the imaging performance and radiation dose characteristics of the O-arm CBCT imaging system (Medtronic Inc., Littleton MA) and demonstrate the potential for improved image quality and reduce...
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...
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...
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...
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...
To determine clinically significant improvement in the patients undergoing procedures under fluoroscopy. To evaluate and compare the adverse event profile in both groups
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.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
