Theatre Radiography

Fluoroscopy is now being used by medical personnel spanning a wide range of clinical specialities. Orthopaedic surgeons use fluoroscopy to perform procedures such as joint replacement, vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty, implant localization and other procedures that correct structural deformities of the skeleton. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), stone extraction, nephrostomy and other relevant procedures are performed under fluoroscopic guidance by urologists in operating theatres. Vascular surgeons and anaesthesiologists also use fluoroscopy in operating theatres.
