Managing the Safety of Medical Personnel During Radiological Procedures

How should I protect against exposure during ERCP procedures using a fluoroscopy system?

Understand the principle of exposure due to radiation scattered from the patient.

Effective measures include wearing protective clothing and protective eyewear, and finishing procedures properly within a short time. Exposure is higher because of the tube being positioned on the stomach side of the patient, but due to the fixed tube position, a shielding panel can be used to effectively shield radiation. Focus on protecting medical personnel from scattered radiation from the patient, by using a simulated body to simulate standing positions with minimal radiation exposure and then sharing those positions with personnel.
