Clinicians working with C-arms and fluoroscopes in the operating room are subjected to background radiation that scatters off the patient every time an image is taken. Keeping an eye on personal exposure is important for orthopedic surgeons and others that regularly work around X-ray devices. Siemens has announced that it’ll be offering the RaySafe i2 system from Unfors RaySafe as an accessory for the Artis zee line of angiography devices.
The RaySafe i2 includes patches that clinicians wear along with a display that provides real time and historical views of exposure that individual clinicians received.
