Interventional cardiovascular procedures in Belgium: Effective dose and conversion factors

abstract
Effective dose ( E), representing the risk of late radiation-induced effects, can be estimated by the use of conversion factors (CF), converting direct measurable quantities such as dose-area-product into E. Eight Belgian hospitals participated in the study with a total number of 318 procedures. E-values, calculated with PCXMC, were compared for the different hospitals for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures separately. E-values varied significantly depending on the hospital where the procedure was performed (P < 0.001), on filtration insertion (P < 0.001), on whether a centre is a training centre or not, the dose conscious action of the cardiologists and the complexity of the procedure ( P < 0.001). Hospital-specific CF were calculated. An average CF of 0.185 mSv Gycm(-2) was obtained with a satisfactory correlation (r = 0.966, P < 0.001). The differences in CF between hospitals were due to, a large extent, the availability of additional filtration in cinegraphy mode (P < 0.001) and not to the differences in irradiation geometries in the clinical protocol of the interventional procedures.
