In the third in the series of videos to mark the launch of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Review, RadcliffeCardiology.com in association with the European Heart Rhythm Association and doctors.net.uk, presents Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Round Table - 3, Approaches to Ablation Part 2: Radioprotection.
In this video, the Round Table discusses radioprotection, and highlights that despite being in an era of non-fluoroscopic, electroanatomic mapping techniques, physicians must still take appropriate measures to reduce radiation dose - for both their patients, and themselves.
The Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Round Table event and videos were supported by an unrestricted grant from Biosense Webster. The view and opinions expressed are those of the attendees, and not necessarily of Biosense Webster.
