SUMMARY Coil embolization is the treatment of choice for cerebral artery aneurysms at our institution. The duration of a fluoroscopic study and frequency of radiation exposure are varied, and the safety measures against radiation injury have not yet been established. Guidelines about radiation injury prevention with IVR have been published. However, there is not yet a detailed report for the head region. We also report our measures to try to reduce the amount of radiation exposure during the… CONTINUE READING
