Name: Investigative radiology
This study measured the radiation exposure of the eye lens of medical personnel performing fluoroscopy and interventional procedures at the Sarawak General Hospital in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. This...
Intraoperative fluoroscopy can be easily used because patients are placed in the supine position during total hip arthroplasty via direct anterior approach (DAA-THA) to reduce complications. However, ...
Ionizing radiation should be considered an avoidable exposure although all pregnant women receive some radiation from their environment. The potential effect of ionizing radiation on the fetus is dete...
Interventional fluoroscopy is a leading source of occupational ionizing radiation exposure for medical personnel. For example, orthopedic surgeons represent one occupation where the risk of exposure i...
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...
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...
There has been increasing awareness regarding the risk of radiation exposure to patients and providers when performing procedures requiring fluoroscopic guidance.
Common Flutter ablation technique use low X-ray based three-dimension (3D) navigation for catheter tracking, have become a popular implementation to treat patient's underlying arrhythmia. ...
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.
Retrospective multicenter study aimed to evaluate radiation exposure associated with different interventional procedures involving interventional cardiologists, interventional radiologists...
Minimally invasive procedures, diagnostic or therapeutic, performed within the BLOOD VESSELS. They may be perfomed via ANGIOSCOPY; INTERVENTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; INTERVENTIONAL RADIOGRAPHY; or INTERVENTIONAL 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.
Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are invasive or surgical in nature, and require the expertise of a specially trained radiologist. In general, they are more invasive than diagnostic imaging but less invasive than major surgery. They often involve catheterization, fluoroscopy, or computed tomography. Some examples include percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, percutaneous transthoracic biopsy, balloon angioplasty, and arterial embolization.
Devices that measure exposure to IONIZING RADIATION.
Phenomenon in which organisms are subjected to radiation.
