Abstract

Interventional procedures in angiography result in an increased radiation exposure for the physician, medical personnel, and the patient longer fluoroscopic times and of images as compared with pure diagnostic examinations. Damages like epilation and erythema are potential effects. Measures are proposed in this paper to reduce the radiation exposure. There are technical means and possibilities in the application technique. Quality checks and remote diagnosis support these measures in addition by assuring a continuous image quality.
