Beds, Mechanical, Radiography/Fluoroscopy
Definition : Mechanical beds designed to permit radiographic and/or fluoroscopic procedures on a patient. These beds typically include radiolucent mattresses and supporting surfaces, raising and lowering mechanisms that do not intervene in the path between the radiation source and image intensifiers, and dimensions and clearances that facilitate placement of the x-ray tube head under the bed. Radiography/fluoroscopy mechanical beds are mainly used for bedside procedures using mobile radiographic or fluoroscopic units.
