PURPOSE To determine patient radiation doses for interventional radiology and neuroradiology procedures, to identify procedures associated with higher radiation doses, and to determine the effects of various parameters on patient doses. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective observational study was performed at seven academic medical centers. Each site contributed demographic and radiation dose data for subjects undergoing specific procedures in fluoroscopic suites equipped with built-in… Expand
Radiation doses in interventional radiology procedures: the RAD-IR study: part II: skin dose.
TLDR
There are substantial variations in PSD among instances of the same procedure and among different procedure types, and it is suggested that dose data be recorded routinely for TIPS creation, angioplasty in the abdomen or pelvis, all emblization procedures, and especially for head and spine embolization procedures. Expand
Radiation doses in interventional radiology procedures: the RAD-IR Study. Part III: Dosimetric performance of the interventional fluoroscopy units.
TLDR
Dosimetric accuracy was well within the tolerances established by IEC standard 60601-2-43, and the clinical dose data reported in the RAD-IR study are valid. Expand
Interventional radiology at a single institution over 9 years: a comprehensive evaluation of procedures and an estimation of collective effective dose.
TLDR
A comprehensive Monte Carlo-aided analysis, which allowed evaluation of contributions in terms of per-procedure and collective doses to the population for the practice of IR, showed a significant growth rate during the study period. Expand
Patient dose in interventional radiology: a European survey.
TLDR
There are many-fold variations in the number of IR equipment and procedures per population, in the entrance dose rates, and in the patient dose data, indicating that a number of parameters affect the differences. Expand
Radiation Protection in Interventional Radiology
Interventional procedures are used by a significant number of medical specialities. Radiation protection (RP) for patients and staff is one of the main issues in Interventional Radiology (IR).Expand
Reference levels for patient radiation doses in interventional radiology: proposed initial values for U.S. practice.
TLDR
Sufficient data exist to permit an initial proposal of values for reference levels for interventional radiologic procedures in the United States, and reference levels without correction for body habitus are recommended. Expand
ESTIMATION OF RADIATION EXPOSURE TO THE PATIENTS IN DIAGNOSTIC AND THERAPEUTIC INTERVENTIONAL PROCEDURES
TLDR
The reported DAP values in this study are within the range of earlier published results which suggest that the finding provides at least approximate applicability to other hospitals. Expand
Effective doses in children: association with common complex imaging techniques used during interventional radiology procedures.
TLDR
Patient effective doses during interventional procedures vary substantially depending on procedure type but tend to be higher because of magnification use in younger children and higher in the abdomen. Expand
Importance of Dose Settings in the X-Ray Systems Used for Interventional Radiology: A National Survey
TLDR
It seems clear that the dose setting for the X-ray systems used in IR requires better criteria and approaches, and the ratios between the maximum and the minimum values measured suggest an important margin for optimization. Expand
Fluoroscopically-guided interventions with radiation doses exceeding 5000 mGy reference point air kerma: a dosimetric analysis of 89,549 interventional radiology, neurointerventional radiology, vascular surgery, and neurosurgery encounters
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrate that a large proportion of cases exceeding 5000 mGy were performed by non-radiologists, who likely do not receive the same training in radiation physics, radiation biology, and dose reduction techniques as radiologists. Expand

Radiation doses in interventional radiology procedures: the RAD-IR study: part II: skin dose.
TLDR
There are substantial variations in PSD among instances of the same procedure and among different procedure types, and it is suggested that dose data be recorded routinely for TIPS creation, angioplasty in the abdomen or pelvis, all emblization procedures, and especially for head and spine embolization procedures. Expand
A study of patient radiation doses in interventional radiological procedures.
TLDR
It was found that among commonly-performed procedures, those that are categorized as therapeutic do not necessarily present a statistically significant greater radiation risk than those which are diagnostic. Expand
Correlation of patient skin doses in cardiac interventional radiology with dose-area product.
TLDR
A poor correlation was found of DAP with maximum skin dose and skin dose indicator, and calculation of individual skin doses based on the specific DAP data per patient is not reliable and therefore measuring skin dose is preferable. Expand
Estimation of effective dose in some digital angiographic and interventional procedures.
TLDR
This study provides dose data for some digital angiographic and interventional procedures and calculates effective dose values per minute of fluoroscopy and per radiography film for five types of procedures. Expand
Comparison of four techniques to estimate radiation dose to skin during angiographic and interventional radiology procedures.
TLDR
F fluoroscopy time is a poor predictor of risk because it does not correlate well with peak skin dose, and cumulative dose and DAP are not good analogues of PSD because of weak correlations for some procedures and because of wide variations in the dose index for all procedures. Expand
Adult patient doses in interventional neuroradiology.
TLDR
Radiation doses to 149 adult patients who underwent interventional neuroradiologic procedures are investigated, showing that on average, 66% of the patient exposure comes from radiographic imaging (DSA), and the corresponding effective doses are noticeably higher than those normally encountered in diagnostic radiology. Expand
Patient dose in radiologically guided interventional vascular procedures: conventional versus digital systems.
TLDR
To reduce the patient dose in vascular interventional radiology procedures, the training of personnel and the frequent use of conventional fluoroscopy and low-dose imaging are required. Expand
Dosimetric and radiation protection considerations based on some cases of patient skin injuries in interventional cardiology.
TLDR
Practical radiation protection considerations to avoid further incidents of this sort are proposed, concerning the use of X-ray systems specially designed for interventional radiology, the improvement of cardiologists' training in radiation protection and routine patient dose measurements for complex interventional procedures.

TLDR
The value of DAP is demonstrated as a measure of radiologist workload in respect of its significance in terms of staff dose and should provide an indicator of those procedures which are associated with particularly high radiation exposures to staff. Expand
The potential for radiation-induced skin damage in interventional neuroradiological procedures: a review of 522 cases using automated dosimetry.
TLDR
The skin doses to patients during 522 interventional neuroradiological procedures have been monitored using an automated dosimetry system and the percentage of dose in fluoroscopic and digital angiographic modes are shown. Expand
