Impact of the X-ray system setting on patient dose and image quality; a case study with two interventional cardiology systems.


This study investigates the influence of the initial X-ray system setting on patient doses and image quality in interventional cardiology procedures. Two dedicated interventional cardiology systems were studied: a system with image intensifier (II) and a flat detector (FD) system. Entrance surface air kerma (ESAK) rates in fluoroscopy and ESAK per frame in… (More)
