Abstract

A questionnaire survey was performed to investigate the different knowledge of radiation exposure, awareness and expectation for O-arm imaging system between the users (orthopaedic surgeons) and the developers (engineers). A total of 93 orthopaedic surgeons and 19 engineers participated and answered the questionnaire consisting of 18 items designed for this study. The items were focused on knowlege, awareness, and expectation. Orthopaedic surgeons had higher scores for items of knowledge domains regarding radiation exposure than the engineers while the engineers were more sensitive to radiation hazards and adopted higher levels of radiation protection than orthopaedic surgeons in the awareness domain. Most engineers and orthopaedic surgeons answered that the requirements of diagnostic and intraoperative imaging systems differ. Image resolution, a low radiation exposure, and the time required for image acquisition was the top three requirements of O-arm selected by engineers. On the other hand, the top three requirements according to orthopaedic surgeons were; image resolution, expediency, and spatial occupancy. User requirements need to be reflected in developing O-arm along with basic requirements such as image resolution and low radiation exposure.
