Apr 29,  · INTRODUCTION. Lumbar spine radiography is a very common and frequent procedure (1–4) with one of the highest patient radiation dose in general radiography (1–11).

Despite the developed modern non-ionising systems, such as magnetic resonance, the use of X-rays is very practicable in diagnostics of lumbar spine (1, 2), which may, however, pose potential risks (). 1, 2 and 3.

Poor com-munication can result in adverse outcomes. May 14,  · Introduction. In general radiography lumbar spine imaging is one of procedures with the highest patient radiation dose.1,2,3 In order to reduce patient dose, one of the methods is the replacement of the conventional anteroposterior (AP) projection with the posterioanterior (PA) projection.4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 Even though the reviewed professional literature12,13,14 still quotes AP Cited by: 1.

Explain how patient exposure can be reduced during fluoroscopic procedures. An observational study based on the interaction between the paediatric patient and radiographer The aim of this study was to observe the interaction between the paediatric patient and the radiographer and to uncover techniques used by the radiographer to help alleviate any fear or stress that the child might have had.

HardyThe Cited by: 3. Exposure rate is the rate of charge production per unit mass of air and is expressed in R/min. Dose area product (DAP) is the total radiation energy delivered to the patient, whereas exposure is radiation concentration only at a particular point, which is expressed in gray-cm 2 (Gy-cm 2).

One of the top reasons there not alike is that using fluoroscopy the patient is receiving a less amount of radiation exposure, compare to conventional radiography is getting up to an extra 50 percent of radiation.

Due to the more use of radiation in conventional radiography we are able to obtain a high contrast with very fine and precise. Radiation Dose Management Market is estimated to value over USD million by end and register a CAGR of over % during the forecast period to Radiation dose is defined as radiation effect on the skin; it depends on the intensity of radiation, exposure time and sensitivity of the skin.

Today we can image the spine using Stand Up MRI technology and posture imaging systems like the Diers Formetic Scanner. When x-ray is used we routinely use breast and gonadal shielding as well as high frequency digital radiography.

The management of spinal deformity in the growing spine presents many challenges to the treating physician. The use of multiple differing imaging modalities is an integral part of this process. The judicious use of imaging technology is critical to minimize exposure to ionizing radiation in the growing leboostcamp.com by: 1.

Dental radiographs are commonly called X-rays. Dentists use radiographs for many reasons: to find hidden dental structures, malignant or benign masses, bone loss, and cavities. A radiographic image is formed by a controlled burst of X-ray radiation which penetrates oral structures at different levels, depending on varying anatomical densities, before striking the film or leboostcamp.com: Mar 14,  · 96 Butler, Thomas, Thompson, Wollerton, Rachlin, Simple Methods to Reduce Patient Exposure During Scoliosis Radiography, Radiologic Technology, Volume 57 Number 5 97 Reuter, Conway, McCrohan, Sueiman, Average Radiation Exposure Values for Three Diagnostic Radiographic Examinations, Radiology Volume Number 3 Contrary to conventional assurances that radiation exposure from mammography is trivial— and similar to that from a chest X-ray or spending one week in Denver, about 1/ 1, of a rad (radiation-absorbed dose)— the routine practice of taking four films for each breast results in some 1,fold greater exposure, 1 rad, focused on each.

The radiation exposure a patient receives will depend on the type of examination and the purpose of the imaging study. Generally, plain X-rays, mammography and fluoroscopy give a lower radiation dose than CT, but complex procedures using fluoroscopy can result in doses similar to extensive CT examinations.

Scoliosis in children of school age and above primarily occurs in girls. Its prevalence is 1% to 2% among adolescents, but more than 50% among persons over age The therapeutic goal in children is to prevent progression.

In children, scoliosis of 20 degrees or more should be treated with a brace, and scoliosis of 45 degrees or more with surgery. Finally, because scoliosis examinations are common in children, the digital image receptor must provide an efficient method to generate images up to 36 inches in length, preferably without doubly exposing some sections of the patient’s anatomy.

PROPER EXPOSURE FACTORS FOR STANDARD EXAMINATIONS Exposure (technique) charts are part of the. It is of huge clinical importance that other instruments for evaluating scoliosis, other than x-ray, be studied and validated in order to reduce exposure to radiation and the harm brought by it, especially in the period of evolution of the scoliotic curve, that is, in childhood and adolescence [2, 27, 28].Author: Isis Juliene Rodrigues Leite Navarro, Jessica Secrieru, Claudia Tarrago Candotti.

Biological Effect of Ionizing Radiation. Ionizing radiation passes through air and will deposit energy into the tissue that absorbs it.

Ionizing radiation deposits a relatively large amount of energy into a small area, and damage caused by the radiation varies with the dose.
