Radiation dose variation in fluoroscopic imaging: Is What You Get, What You See?

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Variations in dose exist amongst various imaging systems and in various acquisition angulations; this is not a new finding. Assessment of Image quality should accompany an assessment of dose, as these complement each other. Routine assessment of dose and image quality with potential comparisons amongst operators, laboratories, and imaging systems may prove beneficial for radiation safety in interventional cardiology practice.
