Computed tomographic angiography (CTA) and cardiac catheterization are useful adjuncts to echocardiography for delineating cardiovascular anatomy in pediatric patients. These studies require ionizing radiation, and it is paramount to understand the amount of radiation pediatric patients receive when these tests are performed. Modern dosimetry methods facilitate the conversion of radiation doses of varying units into an effective radiation dose. To compare the effective radiation dose between… CONTINUE READING
