    The ultimate goal of medical imaging professionals is to produce the best possible images for interpretation. When images don't meet institutional quality standards, fluoroscopy operators must be able to identify the sources of errors and take corrective action to prevent unnecessary repeat exposures. Anne Scott, B.S.R.S., R.T.(R), discusses various factors that affect fluoroscopy image quality including patient positioning, correct technique selection and proper use of equipment. This essential article covers all aspects of image analysis, from evaluating positioning to assessing technical accuracy. Approved for 1.5 Category A+ CE credits by the ASRT.
