We describe a novel and safe needle-holding method that we have termed the 'dual steristrip technique'. This technique can be used to stabilize the bone biopsy needle without the need for the radiologist's hand to be in close proximity to the X-ray beam during CT-guided intervention.

Cardiologists are among the health professionals that are most exposed to ionizing radiation, but there is no recent study quantifying overexposure of physicians during cardiac resynchronization thera...
To study radiation exposure to the primary operator during diagnostic cardiac catheterizations using a radio-dense RAD BOARD® radial access arm board.
The purpose of this study was to compare radiation dose and image quality of single- and dual-energy CT (SECT, DECT) examinations of the chest in matched cohorts for second and third-generation dual-s...
The purpose of this work is to demonstrate quantitatively the complementary relation between the introduction of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and planning target volume (PTV) margin re...
Videofluoroscopic swallowing studies expose both the patients and the staff to ionising radiation. Although the radiation exposure is considered low compared to other diagnostic procedures, it is stil...
This is a randomized controlled trial comparing the success of US guided peripheral IV placement between single vs dual-operator technique among a convenience sample of patients with moder...
Radiation dose to interventional cardiologists performing transradial percutaneous coronary procedures is higher compared to those performing transfemoral exams. The radiation dose seems p...
The purpose of the study is to compare cosmetic outcomes of simple facial lacerations in children repaired with Dermabond (skin glue) compared with Dermabond (skin glue) with underlying st...
The purpose of this study is to compare the radiation exposure of a variety of chest CT examinations performed on the current state of the art CT scanners (64 slice, dual source CT scanner...
Transradial approach (TRA) reduces vascular complications and access related-bleeding compared to transfemoral approach (TFA). However, this technique has been related to higher radiation ...
The use of pre-treatment imaging modalities to position the patient, delineate the target, and align the beam of radiation to achieve optimal accuracy and reduce radiation damage to surrounding non-target tissues.
A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.
A dual specificity phosphatase subtype that plays a role in intracellular signal transduction by inactivating MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASES. It has specificity for EXTRACELLULAR SIGNAL-REGULATED MAP KINASES.
A dual specificity phosphatase subtype that plays a role in intracellular signal transduction by inactivating MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASES. It has specificity for EXTRACELLULAR SIGNAL-REGULATED MAP KINASES and is primarily localized to the CYTOSOL.
A dual specificity phosphatase subtype that plays a role in intracellular signal transduction by inactivating MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASES. It has specificity for EXTRACELLULAR SIGNAL-REGULATED MAP KINASES and is primarily localized to the CELL NUCLEUS.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
