To examine current practice patterns in occupational radiation safety by members of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) and to assess if these vary by surgeon demographics and experience.
This article was published in the following journal.

To evaluate radiation exposure of dogs and cats undergoing procedures requiring intraoperative fluoroscopy and for operators performing those procedures.
The role of the radiation safety officer is to maintain radiation exposures as low as reasonably achievable. Traditionally, the focus has been on reducing or eliminating unnecessary occupational expos...
To describe the technique and initial experience using a rotational 3D fluoroscopy system (O-arm, Medtronic) as intraoperative angiography (IA) in the surgery of cerebral aneurysms.
The increasing complexity involved in procedures requiring fluoroscopy such as endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) results in heightened screening times with attendant radiation expo...
Compared with open procedures, minimally invasive surgical procedures are associated with increased radiation exposure and long-term health risks. Ultralow radiation imaging coupled with image enhance...
Aims: to determine the radiation exposure of routine intraoperative cholangiography (IOC )during cholecystectomy and examine the factors affecting radiation dose and fluoroscopy time (FT)....
There has been increasing awareness regarding the risk of radiation exposure to patients and providers when performing procedures requiring fluoroscopic guidance.
To compare classical pedicle finder versus pedicle finder with impedancemetry on the perioperative radiation exposure of PPTLO. These two devices are already used in common practice.
The purpose of this study is to measure the amount of radiation over a specific period of time that Orthopaedic Surgeons are exposed to while using the mini c-arm fluoroscopy machine.
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...
Freedom from exposure to danger and protection from the occurrence or risk of injury or loss. It suggests optimal precautions in the workplace, on the street, in the home, etc., and includes personal safety as well as the safety of property.
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.
The observation, either continuously or at intervals, of the levels of radiation in a given area, generally for the purpose of assuring that they have not exceeded prescribed amounts or, in case of radiation already present in the area, assuring that the levels have returned to those meeting acceptable safety standards.
Devices that measure exposure to IONIZING RADIATION.
Phenomenon in which organisms are subjected to radiation.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
