Complex and lengthy interventional radiological techniques have resulted in a number of patients developing skin reactions in recent years. To safeguard against these side effects, we have investigated the degree to which entrance skin dose can be reduced by inserting 0.18 mm and 0.35 mm copper filtration in the incident beam. The potential reduction was measured on a 22 cm water phantom for each of eight models of a fluoroscopy unit. Using the catheter laboratory fluoroscopy unit on which… CONTINUE READING
