How does education affect radiation safety when using fluoroscopy? : - a systematic literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Inledning: Genomlysningledda interventioner används i allt högre utsträckning inom ett flertal specialiteter, även utanför röntgenavdelningen. Genomlysning är den modalitet, vilken renderar de högsta stråldoserna och det är även den modalitet där flest dosöverskridningar rapporteras världen över. Syfte: Syftet med litteraturöversikten var att beskriva hur utbildning påverkar strålsäkerheten vid genomlysningsledda interventioner. Metod: Kandidatuppsatsen utfördes som en systematisk litteraturöversikt. Resultatet baseras på tio kvantitativa artiklar. Resultat: Utbildning ger resultat i form av ökad medvetenhet om strålsäkerhet, sänkta stråldoser och minskade genomlysningstider. Utbildningar kan utformas på olika sätt. De kan var teoretiska, praktiska eller en kombination av dessa. Slutsats: Det finns ett signifikant samband mellan genomgången strålsäkerhetsutbildning och att arbeta strålsäkert. Utbildning och checklistor ökar användarnas kunskaper och förbättrar deras arbetstekniker, vilket bidrar till lägre stråldoser, kortare genomlysningstider och ökad medvetenhet om strålsäkerhet. Användare av genomlysning har bristfälliga kunskaper i att arbeta strålsäkert och utbildningen inom strålsäkerhet behöver förbättras.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Fluoroscopy guided interventions are becoming more and more common and are used in several specialities, even outside of the radiology department. Fluoroscopy is the modality, which is causing the highest radiation doses and it is also the modality that is reported to give the most radiation overexposures worldwide. Purpose: The purpose of this systematic literature review was to describe how education affects radiation protection when using fluoroscopy. Method: This bachelor thesis was conducted as a systematic literature review. The results are based on ten quantitative scientific articles. Results: Education gives results in terms of increased awareness of radiation safety, lower radiation doses and reduced fluoroscopy times. The education may take various forms. It can be theoretical, practical or a combination of these two. Conclusion: There is a significant correlation between education and radiation safety. Education and checklists increase user knowledge and improve their working techniques, which contributes to lower radiation doses, shorter fluoroscopy times and increased awareness of radiation safety. Users of fluoroscopy have inadequate knowledge in radiation protection and training in radiation safety needs to be improved.
