PURPOSE To quantify cumulative radiation exposure in patients undergoing arthroscopic hip preservation surgery and occupational exposure to operating room (OR) personnel during such surgery; a secondary objective of this study was to identify factors affecting radiation exposure in patients undergoing hip arthroscopy. METHODS Radiation exposure from all preoperative and intraoperative imaging studies was determined for 52 patients undergoing hip arthroscopy. Cumulative and effective radiation… CONTINUE READING
