Interventional Fluoroscopy - Physics, Technology nd Safety (Hardback)S Balter (author)
Hardback 304 Pages
Fluoroscopic guidance plays a central role in an increasing number of minimally invasive diagnostic and interventional procedures. Fluoroscopic apparatus and related resources continue to evolve in support of this fundamental technology. Interventional Fluoroscopy: Physics, Technology, and Safety is the first resource to provide information that the clinician needs for the safe and efficient operation of interventional fluoroscopic equipment. Topics discussed include: Basic physical and dosimetric concepts common to all forms of X-ray projection imaging systems The structure and function of key components found in the interventional fluoroscope The nature of the digital image and associated tools, such as image compression and quantitative angiography Radiation biology and radiation effects at interventional dose levels Radiation safety, including basic principles and operational and regulatory topics An introduction to vascular brachytherapy Quality assurance of interventional fluoroscopy equipment Authored by one of the most renowned experts in this field, Interventional Fluoroscopy: Physics, Technology, and Safety is an essential resource for interventional physicians, medical physicists, technologists, manufacturers, and others involved with modern interventional procedures.
