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 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 amount of radiation that the Surgeons will be exposed to will be recorded by a ring dosimeter located on the Surgeons' hand, and two badge dosimeters (one above the scrub collar, and one underneath a lead gown at waist level).

Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) procedures are associated with an elevated radiation exposure for the patient. In the recently published guideline of the Federal Ofﬁce ...
The RECAP-trial is a randomized controlled, double blinded, superiority trial studying the efficacy of the RADPAD®, a protective drape, that potentially reduces the scattered radiation re...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the radiation exposure in patients undergoing coronary angiography, and to identify reference values for the main radiation doses parameters.
The objective of this study is to examine critical aspects of radiation exposure, dose delivery, and systemic yttrium-90 (Y90) exposure related to the infusion of Y90 microspheres for trea...
Transradial approach (TRA) reduces vascular complications and access related-bleeding compared to transfemoral approach (TFA). However, this technique has been related to higher radiation ...
As the Radiation Exposure Information and Reporting System (REIRS) celebrates 50 years of existence, this is an appropriate time to reflect on the innovative and novel system and how it has shaped the...
Solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation follows people during their whole life. Exposure to UV radiation is vital but holds serious risks, too. The quantification of human UV exposure is a complex issue. UV ...
Computed tomography (CT), a strong diagnostic tool, delivers higher radiation doses than most imaging modalities. As CT use has increased rapidly, radiation protection is important, particularly among...
Radiation sickness is challenging to diagnose, and the diagnosis is often based on nonclinical data. In accidents where patients are not aware of their exposure to radiation (so-called "occult exposur...
Various endoscopic procedures under fluoroscopic guidance are being rapidly adopted, and radiation exposure is considered to be increasing. However, there is little concern about this issue in gastroe...
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.
Devices that measure exposure to IONIZING RADIATION.
Phenomenon in which organisms are subjected to radiation.
Exposure of the female parent, human or animal, to potentially harmful chemical, physical, or biological agents in the environment or to environmental factors that may include ionizing radiation, pathogenic organisms, or toxic chemicals that may affect offspring. It includes pre-conception maternal exposure.
A condition caused by a brief whole body exposure to more than one sievert dose equivalent of radiation. Acute radiation syndrome is initially characterized by ANOREXIA; NAUSEA; VOMITING; but can progress to hematological, gastrointestinal, neurological, pulmonary, and other major organ dysfunction.
