This Month's RSNA Radiation Dose Exhibit

May 5, 2017 — Radiation Safety in the Fluoroscopy Suite: History, Current Devices, Future Developments, and Controversies (from RSNA 2016)
Many radiation protection devices, such as newer lightweight aprons and slim fitted leaded glasses, may fit and look better, but may not offer the same degree of protection as some of their counterparts. As new data emerges regarding how much radiation exposure is too much, radiologists must be aware of risks to eyes, brain, and other critical structures so that they can take appropriate measures to maximize safety and mitigate risks.
