Boudjemline Y. Effects of reducing frame rate from 7.5 to 4 frames per second on radiation exposure in transcatheter atrial septal defect closure. Cardiol Young. 2018 Nov;28(11):1323-1328.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the reduction of frame rate from 7.5 to 4 frames per second on radiation exposure and to provide new standards of radiation exposure. Frame rate is a large contributor to radiation exposure. The use of 4 frames per second for closure of atrial septal defects has been reported not to affect the level of radiation exposure.
