Operator radiation exposure during right or left transradial coronary angiography: A phantom study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Previous studies showed a possible lower radiation dose absorbed by operators comparing LRA and RRA for percutaneous coronary procedures. The reasons of this lower radiation dose are not well known. The aim of this study was to evaluate the radiation dose absorbed by operators comparing left with right radial access (LRA and RRA respectively… (More)
