PURPOSE With the aim of assessing the effectiveness of radiation-protection devices in invasive cardiology, the goal of this study was to validate relative parameters for operator occupational exposure, standardized to the patient's primary dose. MATERIAL AND METHODS One of these parameters was the local dose, measured in air at the operator's position per dose area product (DAP), applied to a male anthropomorphic Alderson-Rando phantom for simulation of coronary angiography. The second… CONTINUE READING
