Werner GS, Glaser P, Coenen A, et al. Reduction of radiation exposure during complex interventions for chronic total coronary occlusions: Implementing low dose radiation protocols without affecting procedural success rates. Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. 2017 May;89(6):1005-1012.

The increasing complexity of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total coronary occlusions (CTO) leads to a significant increase of radiation exposure for both patient and operator. To study the potential of modified settings of the X-ray equipment combined with operator protocols to reduce radiation dose despite increasing procedural complexity.
