PURPOSE This study tests the conventional wisdom that using fluoroscopy under identical geometrical conditions results in less radiation when using the mini C-arm relative to the large C-arm. METHODS We evaluated the radiation dose for both direct exposure and scatter 2.54 cm outside the intensifier. We used 3 mini and 3 large C-arms in a vertical orientation with the image intensifier below the specimen and the source above. We used 2 specimens: a cadaver hand/wrist and a cadaver elbow… CONTINUE READING
