Retrospective cohort OBJECTIVE.: To describe our technique for and evaluate the time demand, radiation exposure and outcomes of skin-anchored ION in minimally invasive (MIS) lumbar surgery, and to compare these parameters to 2D fluoroscopy for MI-TLIF.
This article was published in the following journal.
Radiation safety has been at the center of interest of both researchers and healthcare institutions. This review will summarize and shed light on the various techniques adapted to reduce staff exposur...
Purpose Clinicians are trained to rely on radiation exposure time as an indicator of patient radiation exposure in Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Studies (VFSSs). However, it has been shown in other med...
Arc welding is an occupation with exposure to intense bursts of UV radiation (UVR). Although industrial settings may be aware of UV light exposure during welding, physicians may be unaware of this sou...
Does nonexistent of your hands on the screen guarantee no radiation exposure to your body? - Study on exposure of the practitioner's hands to radiation during C-arm fluoroscopy-guided injections and effectiveness of a new shielding device.
Observational phantom study.This study aimed to evaluate the radiation exposure dose of practitioner's hands when performing C-arm guided procedures and to determine the usefulness of our newly design...
Cutaneous disorders can impact on the psycho-social wellbeing of children and adults alike, which has been reviewed elsewhere . The present review sets out to evaluate progressions in skin masking an...
With the increasing tourism and adventure travel into extreme environments comes the need to reassess the required protection against ultraviolet (UV) radiation and possible other oxidativ...
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.
This clinical study has been initiated to assess the effect of laser exposure on human skin and determine the threshold for tissue damage. The tissue specific effects will be evaluated thr...
Aims: to determine the radiation exposure of routine intraoperative cholangiography (IOC )during cholecystectomy and examine the factors affecting radiation dose and fluoroscopy time (FT)....
RATIONALE: Testing of skin that has been exposed to artificial sunlight may help in understanding the genetic processes involved in the development of skin cancer. PURPOSE: This trial is ...
The process of aging due to changes in the structure and elasticity of the skin over time. It may be a part of physiological aging or it may be due to the effects of ultraviolet radiation, usually through exposure to sunlight.
Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.
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.
An injury to the skin causing erythema, tenderness, and sometimes blistering and resulting from excessive exposure to the sun. The reaction is produced by the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight.
Devices that measure exposure to IONIZING RADIATION.
