Ergonomic strategies to improve radiographers’ posture during mammography activities

Objectives To identify alternatives for radiographers’ postures while performing mammography that can contribute to reduce the risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs). Methods Radiographers’ postures to positioning craniocaudal (CC) and mediolateral oblique (MLO) views were simulated without any intervention for three scenarios: radiographer/patient with similar ...

Mammography equipment design: impact on radiographers’ practice

Objectives Identify radiographers’ postures during frequent mammography procedures related to the mammography equipment and patient characteristics. Methods A postural task analysis was performed using images acquired during the simulation of mammography positioning procedures. Simulations included craniocaudal/(CC) and mediolateral-oblique/(MLO) positioning in three different ...

Estimating the incidence of adverse events in Portuguese hospitals: a contribution to improving quality and patient safety

Background Several review studies have shown that 3.4% to 16.6% of patients in acute care hospitals experience one or more adverse events. Adverse events (AEs) in hospitals constitute a significant problem with serious consequences and a challenge for public health. The occurrence of AEs in Portuguese hospitals has not yet been systematically studied. The main purpose of this study ...
