This chapter covers the basics of managing surgical imaging across one or more theatres/operating rooms, with examples of potential pitfalls and errors that may occur and how to remedy them. Professional working and management of conflict and issues is also covered, at the level of both the individual radiographer and the team manager. As C-arm systems are expensive, it is unlikely that each operation theatre in a hospital will have its own, and imaging systems will hence be shared across the theatre department. It is therefore important for radiographers working in theatre departments to manage their resources and coordinate with theatre teams to avoid delaying procedures.
