Anyone have any tips of how to get good views of the acetabulum? We in Sheffield use our in-house photographers (average height seems to be around 4’2″) and there is lots of leaning over which I don’t particularly like.
Our photographer uses a step positioned outside the line marking the edge of the Howarth canopy and we lower the table slightly lower than usual and if it is a right hip, for example, she is positioned behind me and level with the patients feet and I rotate outwards for the photograph.
Hi, Andy, it’s not easy especially when our incisions are getting smaller and patients are getting bigger. Retraction nails obviously help but the real issue is getting a good camera shot without decontaminating the field. When we do videos headcams and booms definitely improve the quality and it maybe possible to do similar for stills.
