OBJECTIVE Endovascular procedures have become an integral part of a vascular surgeon's practice. The exposure of surgeons to ionizing radiation and other safety issues have not been well studied. We investigated the radiation exposure of a team of vascular surgeons in an active endovascular unit and compared yearly dosages absorbed by various body parts among different surgeons. Patients' radiation exposure was also assessed. METHODS The radiation absorption of a team of vascular surgeons was… CONTINUE READING
