Integrating Electronic Staff Dose for Radiation Protection Improvements in Interventional Procedures 06 Dec 2019

Interventional procedures remain one of the highest sources of occupational dose within the medical sector and recent advances in minimally invasive procedures have meant both an increase in the complexity and number of such interventional procedures.

This webinar video introduced technology that integrates electronic staff dosimeters into accessible databases that also include patient dose thus providing a rich source of data with which to optimise performance. It discussed both the technology fundamentals along with some of the challenges of this technology. It then discussed applications in interventional cardiology including staff feedback reports [to increase staff safety culture via education], comparisons with passive dosimeters and the holy grail of eliminating most passive dosimeters.

Educational aims:
•    To understand the technology involved and the uncertainties in the data
•    To gain an awareness of the advantages of this unique data set, via example applications
•    To gain an insight into possible future roles for electronic personal monitoring
