Overview

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.
