While enough hydrostatic pressure must be created during the distal colostogram to evaluate for the presence of a communicating fistula, the fluoroscopist must be wary of over-distending the colon.
For each surgical case, the following data were recorded: facility setting, patient BMI, number of vertebral levels requiring imaging, number of localizing fluoroscopy images taken, total fluoroscopy time, total radiation dose, fluoroscopy machine, and whether the fluoroscopist could correctly state his or her role, which was to obtain a lateral lumbar localizing image.
Whenever possible the fluoroscopist should increase the distance between the x-ray tube and patient's skin to reduce the skin dose and should decrease the distance between the image intensifier and the patient.
