Objectives To assess the effectiveness of radiation-reduction measures implemented during pediatric catheterization, and provide data on the radiation doses for common interventional and diagnostic procedures, indexed to body weight. Background Ionizing radiation exposure must be minimized to “as low as reasonably achievable,” by instituting radiation-limiting techniques and knowledge of expected radiation exposure. Methods Radiation-reduction measures included pulsed-fluoroscopy at 7.5 pulses/s...
