Manu S, Suntharos P, Boyle GJ, et al. Radiation Reduction in the Pediatric Catheterization Laboratory Using a Novel Imaging System. J Invasive Cardiol. 2018 Jan;30(1):28-33.

Radiation dose was compared between two modern imaging systems with different x-ray tube technology (Megalix vs Gigalix) and detector type (amorphous vs crystalline silicon) at the same institution. Further reduction in radiation dose than currently reported may be achievable with advances in x-ray tube and detector technology.
