Full description

Fluoroscopy is a vital tool for imaging anatomy and equipment during cardiovascular procedures.  Unfortunately, imaging with x-rays may have detrimental effects on the patient and the staff that are inadvertently exposed due to their proximity to the patient.

This research assesses the effectiveness of dose reducing software during fluoroscopically guided cardiac procedures. Dose levels were measured during coronary angiography, percutaneous coronary intervention, implantation of patent foramina ovale, atrial septal defect and atrial appendage closure devices, and insertion of permanent pacemakers.  Patient and staff dose were compared for two rooms fitted with dose reducing software, to a room that did not have the software installed.

This dataset was produced as part of Kelly Wilson-Stewart's PhD, 'Factors which influence occupational radiation head and eye dose to in-room personnel during angiographic procedures'. 

Kelly's Ph.D. project aims to quantify the levels of temple dose to staff during diagnostic and interventional cardiac and endovascular procedures utilising fluoroscopy.  An additional focus will be placed on reporting on factors that may influence occupational dose levels to nurses and other in-room staff.
