Evaluation of surgeon and patient radiation exposure by imaging technology in patients undergoing thoracolumbar fusion: systematic review of the literature.

08:00 EDT 8th April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Evaluation of surgeon and patient radiation exposure by imaging technology in patients undergoing thoracolumbar fusion: systematic review of the literature."

Minimally invasive spine techniques are becoming increasingly popular owing to their ability to reduce operative morbidity and recovery times. The downside to these new procedures is their need for intraoperative radiation guidance.

EFFECTIVE RADIATION DOSE TO STAFF MEMBERS DUE TO MYOCARDIAL PERFUSION SPECT IMAGING: TRACKING THE EXPOSURE FROM PREPARATION TO PATIENT RELEASE.

The aim of the work was to tack the radiation exposure from dose preparation down to patient release during nuclear cardiac imaging. A total of 111 patients were recruited and external exposure was me...

Influence of novel X-ray imaging technology on radiation exposure during chronic total occlusion procedures.

We assessed whether use of the novel X-ray imaging technology AlluraClarity (Philips Healthcare, Best, The Netherlands) results in a meaningful reduction of radiation exposure for patients during coro...

Fluoroscopic Cranial Radiation Exposure in Spine Surgery: A Prospective Single-Center Evaluation in Operating Room Personnel.

Cranial radiation exposure during instrumented spine surgery is not well documented. We set out to measure this risk to the patient, surgeon, surgical resident, and scrub technician during these proce...

DO THE BMI AND SURGEON INFLUENCE THE PATIENT DOSE IN FLUOROSCOPICALLY GUIDED LUMBAR DISCECTOMY AND FUSION?☆.

A survey was conducted to evaluate the role of the surgeon and the patients' body size, on patient radiation dose in fluoroscopically guided lumbar discectomy and fusion (LDF) procedures. Fluoroscopy ...

Radiation Exposure to Staff and Patient During Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Studies and Recommended Protection Strategies.

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...

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.

Evaluation of biomedical technology in relation to cost, efficacy, utilization, etc., and its future impact on social, ethical, and legal systems.

The application of scientific knowledge or technology to the field of radiology. The applications center mostly around x-ray or radioisotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes but the technological applications of any radiation or radiologic procedure is within the scope of radiologic technology.

Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

The science concerned with problems of radiation protection relevant to reducing or preventing radiation exposure, and the effects of ionizing radiation on humans and their environment.
