At the most recent ISIS conference, I measured radiation levels at different locations during real time fluoroscopy. The results will be submitted for publication soon, but I would strongly suggest buying protective eyeware and thyroid shields, if not static face shields. The amount of radiation exposure to the eyes and thyroid are well above that of the rest of the body during lumbar contralateral 45 degree oblique beam rotation (beam pointing away from the physician) and cross table lateral procedures. Also, any cervical procedure in all rotations and AP causes higher exposure to the eyes than any other part of the body. I suggest immediate purchase of eyeware and face shielding for all procedures.
