Full description

The number and complexity of fluoroscopically-guided cardiac procedures has increased in recent times, as has the concern over the radiation dose.  Exposure to x-rays may result in detrimental effects to both the patient and staff involved in the procedure. Cardiologists have been performing x-ray guided procedures for decades, and patient and staff dose levels in cardiac procedures have been well documented. Vascular surgeons have recently migrated from the operating theatre to work within dedicated fluoroscopic suites, and there is limited literature documenting the differences in radiation exposure for these two specialities(1).

This research compares dose levels during categories of diagnostic and interventional coronary angiography, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), TAVI workups, and diagnostic and interventional vascular procedures (performed by vascular surgeons).

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.
