This constant beam filtration filters out ‘soft’ or non-diagnostic X-rays and is standard on Philips mobile and fixed imaging systems. No action is required from the surgeon or staff to manage X-ray dose efficiency.
Philips systems offer dedicated imaging modes allowing you to select the best-suited imaging parameters. Each mode is designed to achieve the best image quality for the selected procedure – while maintaining effective dose efficiency.
Easily removable grid on the flat detector makes it possible to visualize small anatomy and extremities with exceptional image quality and excellent x-ray dose efficiency.
It is important to educate your clinical staff to aid in X-ray dose efficiency measures in the OR. Your team members play a significant role in the precautions that must be taken to manage exposure.
Cardiologists, vascular surgeons, and orthopedic surgeons are among those professionals moving toward the use of less invasive treatment options offered by image-guided surgery. The proactive adherence of the imaging team (surgeon and radiographer) to the ALARA principle (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) can help manage unnecessary radiation exposure.
By understanding the behavior of X-rays and the capabilities of the imaging system, interventionalists and their team can manage x-ray dose in the OR for themselves and their patients.
