Ubeda C, Vano E, Miranda P, et al. Patient And Staff Doses In Paediatric Interventional Cardiology Derived From Experimental Measurements With Phantoms. Phys Med. 2016 Jan;32(1):176-81.

The aim of this paper was to determine experimentally the entrance surface air kerma (ESAK) and kerma-area product (KAP) levels to patients and scatter doses at the cardiologist’s eyes during paediatric interventional cardiology (IC) procedures for Chile, on the basis of measurements taken from X-ray systems characterization for different thicknesses of polymethyl methacrylate, together with the average values of fluoroscopy time and number of cine frames for ten paediatric IC procedures.
