Abstract

Fluoroscopy is an x-ray based imaging modality capable of producing still images or real-time moving images. There is the potential for comparatively high radiation doses to the patient and staff if it is not operated in the correct manner. This article examines the practical techniques available to use c-arm fluoroscopy safely and provides some methods for improving image quality. There is a definite need for structured training in both operation of fluoroscopy units and the associated radiation safety issues, before staff are permitted to use the equipment.
