OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to quantify the reduction in patient radiation dose during coronary angiography (CA) by a new X-ray technology, and to assess its impact on diagnostic image quality. BACKGROUND Recently, a novel X-ray imaging technology has become available for interventional cardiology, using advanced image processing and an… CONTINUE READING
