In theatre radiography, fluoroscopy is now being used by medical personnel spanning a wide range of clinical specialities.
Our radiation protection programme ensures compliance with SA Radiation Board regulations. Its goal is to ensure that radiation doses to workers and members of the public are as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA).
Following their successful installation and acceptance, equipment must be monitored on an ongoing basis to ensure continued, reliable performance.
This ongoing, periodic evaluation procedure is quality controlled (QC). The purpose of QC testing is to detect changes that may result in a clinically significant degradation in image quality or a significant increase in radiation exposure.
If you have questions on radiation dose and QC programmes, please contact our SCP Principal Radiographer.
