Abstract

Our study demonstrates that no radiation exposure to the surgeon occurs in cbCT-based, 3D image-guided spinal surgery procedures. Additionally, radiation scatter does not result in surgeon radiation exposure during patient registration if the surgeon stands behind a lead shield 10 feet from the cbCT device and not in direct line with the opening of the cbCT tube.
