Limiting the amount of radiation exposure to patients and healthcare professionals is a key topic in healthcare today. When using fluoroscopy, it’s important to be aware of the different methods used to reduce dose and how different manufacturers chose to use them. The Hologic Fluoroscan InSight FD mini C-arm is designed to use dose efficiently, applying the ALARA – “as low as reasonably achievable” – radiation safety principle, to reduce unnecessary radiation exposure to both you and your patients. The low dose mode enables the user to reduce dose by up to 50% compared to auto mode.4

The purpose of the study was to examine the efficacy of a mini C-arm at increasing the successful closed reduction internal fixation rate and decreasing procedure time for metacarpal fractures treated in a minor surgery center. Before the mini c-arm, patients were sent to the x-ray department after the procedure. If the reduction or the fixation were found to be inadequate or incorrect, then the patient would have to undergo further intervention, costing both time and resources.
