Medscape Cardiology: Climbing Head and Neck Tumor Count in Interventional Cardiologists Prompts Calls for More Study

This article examines the rates of radiation exposure and the incidence of brain tumors among interventional cardiologists and radiologists. Most notably, the researchers found that in 86% of the cases reviewed, the malignancy was left-sided whereas in the general population, the tumors would be equally distributed between left and right sides. Additionally, the annual radiation dose in adult cardiology is equivalent to 20 to 30mSv. This evidence suggests that there is a strong need to increase safety for both the staff and operators within the cath lab by reducing radiation exposure.
