Angiography

Angiography X-ray systems are the center piece of the catheterization lab, interventional lab and hybrid OR. These cath lab imaging systems offer a fluoroscopic X-ray view of the anatomy in the form or an angiogram image to guide diagnostic and interventional procedures.

A patient injuried by extreme exposure to X-ray radiation during an angiography procedure, which is included among the images in the American College of Cardiology (ACC) consensus document. Angiography skin burn.

A patient injured by extreme exposure to X-ray radiation during an angiography procedure, which is included among the images in the consensus document. Severe skin injury typically appears four to eight weeks following the exposure. In extreme cases, the ulceration can become confluent and full thickness necrosis of skin may develop, exposing underlying fat, muscle and even bone.

The ZerGravity radiation protection system. The Zero Gravity suit allows interventional radiologists and cardiologists to shed their lead aprons in the cath lab.

One radiation protection technology that often has operators packed around displays at some conference expos waiting to try it out is the ZeroGravity system. It is a ceiling suspended suit that offers more protection than standard aprons, offering full body protection including the face. It allows operators to shed their lead aprons and eliminate any weight on the operator’s back, helping alleviate orthopedic back pain.
