Radiation Safety During Endovascular Procedures

Modern vascular and endovascular surgery rely on the extensive use of x-ray imaging. We are studying the variables which affect the amount of radiation the team will be exposed to during these procedures in an effort to minimize the risk to the team while providing excellent imaging quality to ensure the optimal patient outcome.
