1. Results are specific to the institution where they were obtained and may not reflect the results achievable at other institutions.
2. Routine coronary interventions comprise of fluoroscopy and exposure usage.
3. (95% CI of 53%, 77% for all diagnostic and interventional coronary procedures). The results of the application of dose reduction techniques will vary depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. The interventional cardiologist assisted by a physicist as necessary has to determine the appropriate settings for each specific clinical task.
4. Results based on total dose area product from a single center prospective controlled randomized study (University Hospital Gent, Belgium) on 122 patients (42 for Allura Xper and 80 for AlluraClarity) undergoing coronary procedures. Of the 122 patients, 102 (83.6%) had a diagnostic procedure without intervention and 51 (41.8%) resulted in a diagnosis of no coronary disease. Patient radiation exposure was quantified using cumulative dose area product as collected from Radiation
