What is Biplanar imaging?

Biplane imaging is one of the most advanced interventional medical imaging technologies available. It uses two rotating cameras, one on each side of the patient, to take simultaneous images.

What is the difference between fluorography and radiography?

Radiography or X-ray and fluoroscopy procedures seem similar. However, fluoroscopy obtains moving images of the inner part of the body and radiography uses gamma rays to develop a static image of the internal structure of a body.

What is a biplane procedure?

What is anatomical programming radiography?

Anatomic Programming Radiography (APR) Technique by which graphics representing images of normal skeletal anatomy(human/animal) on the console guide the technologist in selection of a desired kVp and mAs by just selecting the particular body part(human/animal) to be examined.

How is DAP measured?

The DAP is a surrogate measurement for the total amount of X-ray energy delivered to the patient, and reflects the dose within the radiation field and area of tissue irradiated. DAP is measured in centi-Gray centimeter squared (cGy × cm2).

What is biplane angiography?

Biplane imaging also allows doctors to follow the path of blood flow through your vessels and to create a “roadmap” for reaching and treating the precise location of disease or malformation. Also known as angiography, this process involves inserting a small catheter into an artery, a similar procedure to getting an IV.

Does a fluoroscopy hurt?

While fluoroscopy itself is not painful, the particular procedure being performed may be painful, such as the injection into a joint or accessing of an artery or vein for angiography.

What does a biplane look like?

A biplane is a fixed-wing aircraft with two main wings stacked one above the other. The first powered, controlled aeroplane to fly, the Wright Flyer, used a biplane wing arrangement, as did many aircraft in the early years of aviation.

What is a biplane used for?

Biplanes predominated in military and commercial aviation from World War I through the early 1930s, but the biplane’s greater maneuverability could not offset the speed advantage of the lighter monoplane. After World War II, biplanes were used only for special purposes: crop dusting and sport (aerobatic) flying.

How does AEC work in radiography?

Automatic exposure control (AEC) is a device incorporated into radiographic and mammographic imaging systems. Its function is to automatically terminate exposure when a preset amount of radiation has been detected.

When is AEC used?

A medical radiographic exposure is always initiated by a human operator but an AEC detector system may be used to terminate the exposure when a predetermined amount of radiation has been received. The intention of AEC is to provide consistent x-ray image exposure, whether to film, a digital detector or a CT scanner.
