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.

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...
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...
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...
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 ...
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...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a novel digital image enhancement (DIE) technology in reducing the radiation exposure to both the patient and surgical staff d...
Study the Patient and staff Safety regarding the radiation exposure during the procedure with and without the fusion imaging guidance technology in treatment of peripheral artery disease.
Endovascular revascularization has revolutionized the field of vascular surgery and has become the first-choice treatment for peripheral arteries occlusive disease. However, the drawback o...
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...
The purpose of this clinical research is to compare new methods of identifying the locations of tumours to standard CT imaging. Analysis of the tissue removed during surgery (pathology) wi...
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.
