5 Technologies to Reduce Cath Lab Radiation Exposure
Diagnostic & Interventional Cardiology recently published an article highlighting 5 technologies available in the cath lab to reduce radiation exposure and the occupational hazards of working in the lab. Concern continues to grow for the serious risks interventionalists and their cath lab team’s face. New studies have shed light on potential risks including brain tumors, posterior subcapsular lens changes, and thyroid disease among others. Robotic therapy is among the new technologies that have the potential to both reduce radiation exposure and associated orthopedic strain from heavy lead protective apparel. In addition to these benefits, cardiovascular robotics has potential benefits for patients.
