BACKGROUND A great deal of attention has been directed at the necessity and potential for deleterious outcomes as a result of radiation exposure during diagnostic evaluations and interventional procedures. We embarked on this study in an attempt to accurately determine the amount of radiation exposure given to patients undergoing complex endovascular aortic repair. These measured doses were then correlated with radiation dose estimates provided by the imaging equipment manufacturers that are… CONTINUE READING
