AIMS The aim of this study was to evaluate whether a real-time (RT) colour pictorial radiation dose monitoring system reduces patient skin and total radiation dose during coronary angiography and intervention. METHODS AND RESULTS Patient demographics, procedural variables and radiation parameters were recorded before and after institution of the RT skin dose recording system. Peak skin dose as well as traditionally available measures of procedural radiation dose were compared. A total of 1… Expand
Selective anti-scatter grid removal during coronary angiography and PCI: a simple and safe technique for radiation reduction
TLDR
Removing the anti-scatter grid (ASG) is a simple and effective method to significantly reduce radiation dose in coronary angiography and PCI while maintaining adequate diagnostic image quality. Expand
Mr Glenn Ison Real-time skin dose Radiation Monitoring during Coronary Angiography
The collective dose of radiation used in medical investigations and procedures has increased by greater than 700% between 1980 and 2006 [1]. Consequently the use of ionizing radiation has developedExpand

TLDR
The accuracy of PSD calculated on phantom studies with these software solutions are within ± 25% and poorer in patient studies, so improvements are therefore required for manufacturers of both software and IR systems. Expand

TLDR
Large differences among vendors made it clear that work remains to be done before an accurate and reliable skin dose mapping is available for all patients. Expand
Radiation protection in the cardiac catheterization laboratory.
TLDR
A practical approach to radiation dose management is presented and best practice recommendations in the cardiac catheterization laboratory are discussed and special care and consideration should be extended to pregnant women working in the cardiology laboratory. Expand
Efficacy of radiation dose reduction due to real‐time monitoring and visualization of peak skin dose during coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention
This study assessed that the use of real‐time monitoring and visualization of peak skin dose could reduce radiation dose during coronary angiography (CAG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
Safety and effectiveness of strategies to reduce radiation exposure to proceduralists performing cardiac catheterization procedures: a systematic review
TLDR
Evidence is provided to support the use of leaded pelvic drapes for patients as an additional radiation protection strategy for proceduralists performing transradial or transfemoral cardiac catheterization, and further studies on the effectiveness of using a lower fluoroscopy frame rate, real-time radiation monitor, and transradional protection board are needed.

Radiation exposure to operating room personnel and patients during endovascular procedures.
TLDR
Personnel doses were best correlated with KAP and less well correlated with fluoroscopy time or cumulative air kerma (CAK), and operators can reduce the effective dose to themselves, the patient, and other personnel by minimizing the use of digital subtraction acquisitions, avoiding lateral angulation, using higher magnification levels when possible, and being diligent about theUse of shielding during fluoroscopic procedures.

Cumulative patient effective dose in cardiology.
TLDR
The average contemporary cardiological patient is exposed to a significant cumulative effective dose from diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, and it is important to log cumulative dose for each patient at the time of each examination. Expand
