PURPOSE To evaluate stochastic and deterministic risks associated with neurointerventional procedures for the patient. METHODS Eight neurovascular interventional procedures were evaluated to determine the entrance skin dose and effective dose for the patient. Dosimetry was done with thermoluminescence dosimeters. The highest dose on the patient's head was recorded as the maximum entrance skin dose. The equivalent dose was obtained by conversion of the dose-area product using published… CONTINUE READING
