Conclusion

Based on this literature review, assisting staff were well within the maximum permissible limits of annual radiation exposure during urologic procedures utilizing fluoroscopy. However, considering the ALARA principle, all measures should be taken to reduce radiation exposure. Assistants and nursing staff must be mindful of the deleterious effects of excessive radiation exposure and take an active role in reducing their exposure.
