Abstract

Radiological imaging used in cardiac procedures may result in significant radiation doses to the patient. The aim of this study was to estimate radiation risks from typical cardiac procedures. Monte Carlo simulations were performed to assess absorbed organ doses. Equivalent organ doses and effective doses were calculated using the recommendations in ICRP Publications 60 and 103 [1,2]. The differences in effective dose applying the two recommendations were found to be small. Cancer incidence risks for different organs were calculated for different sex and age at exposure using the lifetime attributable risks provided by the Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiations report VII. These results are a straightforward method to comprehend radiation risks.
