2013 (English)In: Europace, ISSN 1099-5129, E-ISSN 1532-2092, Vol. 15, no 3, 444-446 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The purpose of the survey was to evaluate physician's and authorities policies and clinical practices when using occupational X-ray during ablation procedures and device implantation. This survey shows infrequent use of lead gloves, radiation absorbing pads, and lead glass cabins, but increasing use of three-dimensional mapping systems to decrease X-ray radiation hazards. Digital fluoroscopy with decreased frame rate is not used by approximately one-third of responding centres.
