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.
