This article illustrates the effectiveness of targeted radioprotective strategies for the interventional echocardiographer. The reader should recognize the importance of engagement of all team members in the multifaceted process of radiation exposure mitigation. Future efforts/studies should focus on the impact of team oriented training, lab design, and development of novel supplies and equipment to mitigate radiation exposure of all personnel in the cardiac catheterization lab, particularly during more complex interventional procedures.
