One reduced surgical time and patient morbidity but at the way of minimizing exposure time is achieved with the use expense of radiation exposure to the surgeon, patient and of a laser aiming guide which insures that the intensifier is operating theatre staff. Radiation exposure is not without its accurately placed over the desired area before X-ray risks. The effects of repeated exposure to low-dose screening; this significantly reduces the screening time irradiation are poorly understood , and it is accepted and, by implication, the amount of radiation exposure to the that there is no safe dose for irradiation .
