Webinar: Contemporary Adult Cardiac Interventions and Their Associated Radiation Exposure: Managing Dose in an Increasingly Complex Environment

Webinar supported by Philips Healthcare

Dr. Chad Alan Kliger, M.D., M.S.

This webinar discussed why contemporary adult cardiac interventions require significant ionizing radiation with potential health risks to both the patient and operator. Modifiable in-laboratory techniques such as protective shielding and technical changes have offered some improvement in radiation exposure. However, with increasing procedural complexity and alternative access approaches, rising demands of protection exist. Novel imaging technologies such as fusion imaging, the merging of multiple imaging modalities (computed tomographic angiography and echocardiography) with fluoroscopy, and image processing software aid in fine-tuning image quality and procedural guidance, while reducing radiation dose. This webinar identifies the current state of adult cardiac interventions and potential applications of these novel imaging technologies for improved procedural efficacy and radiation safety.

Learning Objectives:


Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:


Describe ionizing radiation dose and potential health risks to both the patient and operator


Recognize currently applied modifiable in-laboratory techniques of radiation safety


Identify novel imaging technologies such as CTA-fluoroscopy and echo-fluoroscopy fusion imaging and image processing and their impact on image quality, procedural guidance, and dose reduction


Intended Audience:


This webinar is intended for interventional cardiologists and cardiologists.

Chad Alan Kliger, M.D., M.S.


Kliger completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Columbia University New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York. He went on to complete fellowships in Cardiovascular Medicine and Interventional Cardiology at New York University Medical Center, New York and Structural and Congenital Heart Disease at Lenox Hill Heart and Vascular Institute/North Shore LIJ Health System, New York. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of Cardiology at the Hofstra University School of Medicine within the Division of Structural and Congenital Heart Disease. His clinical focus is in interventional cardiology with expertise in cardiac catheterization, advanced invasive hemodynamics, structural heart disease, and adult congenital heart disease and in advanced imaging specifically cardiac fusion imaging.
