  • Radiation exposure during non-thrombotic iliac vein stenting. [Journal Article]
  • VVascular 2019 May 08; :1708538119848558
  • Chait J, Davis N, … Ascher E
  • CONCLUSIONS: With the adjunctive use of intravascular ultrasound, iliac vein stenting can be safely and effectively performed with very low utilization of fluoroscopy, and therefore radiation exposure can be minimized for both patients and surgeons. Placement of >1 iliac vein stent resulted in higher cumulative air kerma and fluoroscopy time.
  • Retrospective study of patients radiation dose during cardiac catheterization procedures. [Journal Article]
  • BJBr J Radiol 2019 May 14; :20181021
  • Osei B, Xu L, … Osei E
  • CONCLUSIONS: We have analyzed patient radiation doses from six commonly used procedures in our cardiac catheterization laboratories and suggested possible initial values for benchmark from these procedures for the fluoroscopy time, KAP and air-kerma at the interventional reference point based on our current practices. Our data compare well with published values reported in the literature by investigators who have also studied patient doses and established benchmark dose levels for their facilities. Procedure-specific benchmark dose data for various groups of patients can provide the motivation for monitoring practices to promote improvements in patient radiation dose optimization in the cardiac catheterization laboratories.
  • Preventing Harm From Fluoroscopically Guided Interventional Procedures With a Risk-Based Analysis Approach. [Journal Article]
  • JAJ Am Coll Radiol 2019 Apr 25
  • Justinvil GN, Leidholdt EM, … Moran JM
  • CONCLUSIONS: This work demonstrates the application of formal risk-based analysis techniques in FGI procedures. These high priority interventions may be valuable for other facilities to consider when performing potentially high-radiation dose procedures and conducting risk-benefit analyses. Formal risk analysis techniques such as the HFMEA process are recommended for other facilities to use to improve safety for their high-risk procedures.
