What is an effective method of radiation protection during IVR procedures?
Understand the principle of exposure due to radiation scattered from the patient.
Specifically, the most effective protection measures are wearing protective clothing and protective eyewear, using protective shielding panels, and finishing procedures properly within a short time. In addition, keep your hands out of the exposure field during fluoroscopy, keep the tube below the patient table, and wear a real time personal dosimeter and check the indicated values during procedures.
