In pediatric interventional cardiology, cardiologists need to stay closer to the patient than during adult catheterization, and the use of biplane systems increases the scatter radiation. Occupational radiation risk is rather high, and estimation of lens doses becomes necessary. Deriving factors for assessing these doses from the patient doses displayed in catheterization laboratories can help in preserving staff radiation safety. A biplane X-ray system and polymethylmethacrylate plates of 4 to… CONTINUE READING
