  1. Variations in dose to the extremities of vascular/interventional radiologists.

    Article - En anglais

    An evaluation was performed to determine the distribution of radiation dose received by vascular/interventional radiologists, henceforth called radiologists, to their hands and arms during interventional radiology procedures.

    During 87 patient procedures, measurements were made using thermoluminescent dosimeters to determine the distribution ofdose to the hands and forearms.

    Measurements were made on a finger, the palm, wrist, elbow, and the mid-humerus of both hands and arms.

    Results suggested a non-uniformity ofdose with the maximum dose being measured on the left hypothenar (fleshy side of the palm).

    The left hand receives a higher dose than the right hand due to positioning of the radiologist with respect to the patient.
