We have developed a teaching programme for non-radiologists who use fluoroscopy, which includes techniques for reducing the radiation received by the patient and the surgeon during orthopaedic procedures.
The techniques revolve around the radiation protection concepts of time, distance and shielding.
The programme has been very successful in reducing the total fluoroscopy times of orthopaedic surgeons ; in our institute, durations have been reduced to about 10% of those before the training started.
We review the aims and content of our programme.
