Image Guided Adjustment
|Study Shows Superior Weight Loss is Achieved with Fluoroscopically Guided Band Adjustments||
Superior weight loss with patient driven, Fluoroscopically guided band adjustment following laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding
Department of Surgery, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, Illinois 60153, USA.
|Radiation Safety while under Fluoroscopy||
Banding Centers of America uses Scatter-Ban® radiation barrier, a patented accessory that’s been proven to offer clinically significant reductions (up to 99%) in harmful scatter radiation exposure Data documenting this dramatic result has been scientifically demonstrated and is attached for your review.
We use the additional protection of this clinically proven accessory for every procedure.
|Image Guided Adjustment (aka Flouroscopy)||
Fluoroscopy (a type of X-ray) is used to guide the adjustment process visually. The fluoroscopy is painless and the amount of radiation exposure to the patient is minimal (not dangerous). It is especially helpful to place the access needle into the adjustment port in difficult circumstances.
