Cervical spine imaging using standard C-arm fluoroscopy: patient and surgeon exposure to ionizing radiation.

Abstract

STUDY DESIGN A cadaveric cervical spine specimen is imaged with a standard C-arm fluoroscope during a simulated procedure. Patient and surgeon exposure to radiation is estimated by placing dosimeters at various locations in 3-dimensional space. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate radiation exposure to patient and surgeon when using C-arm… (More)
