Fluoroscopic Units, Portable, Radioactive Isotope
Definition : Portable fluoroscopic units that use a radiation isotope as the x-ray source instead of a conventional x-ray generator. These units typically are handheld and operated; they permit the observation of small parts of the body (e.g., hands, feet, joints). Radioactive isotope fluoroscopic units are used to assess injured people before transport, in pediatric medicine, and in remote places or emergency situations.
