This webinar focuses on implementation of different strategies to help clinicians reduce radiation exposure during interventional electrophysiology procedures. It offers an overview of the latest techniques will be provided, along with practical tips and examples of stepwise improvements in the rational use of radiation, offering the potential to help clinicians reduce both exposure duration and exposure rate in different types of EP cases. The live session was held May 2, 2013, but an recorded version of the session can be found at the link below.  

Speaker: Dr. Tom De Potter
De Potter is the associate director of cardiology and head of the complex arrhythmia program at OLV Hospital Aalst, a private owned tertiary care facility in Belgium with advanced cardiology services and a prolific research department. He graduated in medicine at Leuven University, with cardiology training in Aalst, residency at Leuven and Ghent University, and EP fellowships in Barcelona and Hamburg. De Potter heads an in-hospital international training program on multi-modality imaging for ventricular tachycardia ablation and is actively involved in multiple multi center international trials on ablation and drug therapy for arrhythmia, including EAST, FIRE&ICE and Thermocool Smarttouch.
