Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

This article illustrates the positive impact of fluoroscopic imaging equipment on radiation dose reduction in CTO PCI. The reader should recognize the importance of purchasing and maintaining the best equipment, understanding procedure/patient complexity, and assuring operator training in radiation dose reduction. Future efforts/studies should focus upon all three areas of dose reduction for best results.
