INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY PROCEDURES ON CATH LAB EQUIPMENT/ FLUOROSCOPY PROCEDURES ON R&F EQUIPMENT:
INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY PROCEDURES ON CATH LAB EQUIPMENT/ FLUOROSCOPY PROCEDURES ON R&F EQUIPMENT:

Interventional radiology is a medical sub-specialty of radiology which utilizes minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. Using X-rays, CT, ultrasound, MRI, and other imaging modalities, interventional radiologists obtain images which are then used to direct interventional instruments throughout the body.

Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses X-rays to obtain real-time moving images of the internal structures of a patient through the use of a fluoroscope. The most commonly used procedure is the gastrointestinal fluoroscopy (barium meal test).

The radiation during the long lasting procedures can constitute an occupational hazard for the physicians, allied medical professionals if proper care is not taken.

  9. Keep hands out of and away from the x-ray field when the beam is on unless physician control of invasive devices is required for patient care during fluoroscopy
  10. If image quality is not compromised, remove the grid during procedures on small patients or when the image receptor cannot be placed close to the patient.
