Increased Patient BMI Ups Physician Radiation Exposure in Cath Lab
Increased body mass index among patients undergoing coronary angiography procedures is linked to greater physician radiation exposure, according to data published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions. For the study, Ryan D. Madder, M.D., from the Frederik Meijer Heart and Vascular Institute of Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and colleagues collected real-time radiation exposure data during coronary angiography procedures.
