Management of patient and staff radiation doses in fluoroscopy is of increasing concern to accrediting organizations, regulatory agencies, insurers, and hospital systems.

The incidence of lens opacities after several years of working in a cath lab can be up to 40-50% and unintended use of extreme doses to patients can cause life-changing injuries. Learning proper radiation reduction techniques is therefore critical for all interventional procedures.
