Radiation Exposure to Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Interventions

  title={Radiation Exposure to Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Interventions},
  author={Eberhard Kuon and Klaus Empen and Dirk Rohde and J. Dahm},
To determine predictors of patient radiation exposure due to percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) and to compare our results with the “preliminary reference levels”, recently proposed by the European DIMOND research cardiology group: i. e., 75 Gy · cm2 for dose area kerma product (DAP), 17 min for fluoroscopy time (TF), and 1,300 for cinegraphic frames (F). For 642 PCI—exclusive of the fraction for diagnostic catheterization to avoid statistical confounder effects—we measured total DAP… CONTINUE READING
