Minimizing x-ray dose exposure for EP physicians, patients and support staff

EHRA webinar

Add to calendar30/10/20140:00 30/10/20140:00 Europe/Paris Minimizing x-ray dose exposure for EP physicians, patients and support staff European Heart Rhythm Association DD/MM/YYYY
Invasive Electrophysiology and Ablation


For all physicians performing interventional EP, both ablations and implantations, trained or in training.

The concepts and practical advice also applies to other invasive cardiologists. The course refreshes concepts on radiation exposure, but presents more practical tips and tricks on how to reduce it than most other educational material on this topic. Both beginners and advanced operators will learn.

The Webinar will review some very practical steps that can be implemented to reduce the exposure during interventional electrophysiological procedures by a factor of 10 or more! Reducing exposure to your patients means also similar radiation exposure to yourself and the other cathlab personnel.

By the end of the Webinar, you should be able to estimate the radiation exposure to your patient by calculating effective dose (in mSv) and understand that value as a way to express the biological effect on your patient. You will be able to implement simple technical changes, workflow changes and improved shielding to achieve the goal of a drastic exposure reduction.
