Monday, March 15, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Of course, radiation exposure from medical imaging is a concern of cardiologists, but how large of a problem is it? Come to this session and find out.
It's one thing to know about radiation exposure safety and quite another to pass that information onto colleagues, fellows and residents. In this session, cardiologists also will learn what to know and teach about radiation safety to protect themselves as well as their patients.
If you're unfamiliar with the "ACIC CCTA Experience," this session will detail how the use of a registry reduced radiation in the imaging laboratory.
Interventional cardiologists and electrophysiologists also can benefit by attending this session from a lecture on monitoring radiation in the cath and EP labs. And finally, it may be time to put turf issues aside and examine what cardiologists can learn from radiologists regarding radiation safety.
