Patient and Staff Radiation Exposure in Hybrid OR

2017 02 May

New research shows that working conditions in a vascular hybrid operating room (HOR) are safe in terms of patient and staff radiation protection. However, researchers say doses are highly dependent on the workload and further research is needed to evaluate any possible radiological deviation of the daily working conditions in the HOR. The findings... Read more
