    Radiology uses techniques such as X-ray imaging to detect and diagnose diseases and injuries, manage patient care, and guide many forms of medical treatment. Because X-rays involve ionizing radiation that can deposit energy in human cells and cause tissue changes, it is important to minimize any associated risk to the patient.   Precautions to Minimize Exposure to Patient and Operator. Utilize radiation only when imaging is necessary to support clinical care. Avoid allowing the "heavy foot," to step on the fluoroscopy pedal while not looking at the image. Minimize use of cine. "Fluoro-save" has a exposure of cineangiography.

This book comprehensively reviews the medical management issues of pregnant patients who require, or have already had, diagnostic medical imaging studies.

Included are discussions on radiation risks, the methods, pitfalls and uncertainties of assessing radiation dose, and the relationship of dose to biological effects on the by: Exposure of the Pregnant Patient to Diagnostic Radiations: A Guide to Medical Management Louis K.

Abstract. Malpractice lawsuits charging that an abortion or fetal anomaly was caused by exposure to diagnostic radiation are infrequent.

Nevertheless, radiologists should make every effort to decrease the likelihood of exposing an unknowingly pregnant woman to radiation in order to prevent clinical danger to the fetus and any potential legal liability.

Exposure time is kept to a minimum level in radiography to prevent motion blur of the image caused by patient movement. A short exposure time usually requires a high mA, which does not reduce the patient's dose considerably.

Radiation intensity can be increased by using higher mA stations, not by minimizing exposure time. The exposed group consisted of pregnant women exposed to sub diaphragmatic ionizing radiations for diagnostic purposes, during the first trimester of pregnancy, and the control group consisted.

Multiple studies have estimated levels of radiation exposure to the fetus and have reported an average exposure between 10 and mrad, 38 The largest study, by Kahaleh et al., 20 examined radiation exposure in 15 pregnant women undergoing ERCP.

Techniques were used to minimize fluoroscopy time, and exposure levels were monitored by. A booklet entitled “Radiation Risk: A Primer”, published in by the ACR, admonishes that “radiation exposure of a pregnant female should be avoided unless the patient has an acute medical problem.” Other publications put the prohibition about administering iodine to pregnant.
