Summary of "Dual steristrip technique: a novel use of steristrips to reduce operator radiation dose during CT-guided intervention."

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
