What to Wear During Fluoroscopy
Fluoroscopy is an imaging technology that allows, through the use of X-rays, a view in real time of a patient’s internal structure. It is an advanced and highly productive diagnostic tool. Although the process requires a low dose of radiation, it takes longer to accomplish than a simple X-ray photo and therefore exposes the patient to a relatively high absorbed dose of radiation.
Fluoroscopy Clothing and Radiation Protective Wear
Technicians involved in this process also risk exposure and must properly equip themselves for the task. Protective gear for the Fluoroscopy technician includes:
- A lead apron
- A thyroid shield
- Lead gloves
- Leaded eyewear
