Abstract: Advances in imaging technology have facilitated the development of increasingly complex interventional cardiac equipment. Consequently, there is a need for definitive equipment requirements. The aim of the study is to assess the performances of different cardiac angiographic systems. A questionnaire was sent to centres participating in SENTINEL Project to collect dosimetry data (typical entrance dose rate in fluoroscopy and imaging mode), image quality evaluations (low and high contrast resolutions) and KAP calibration factors. Results from this survey could contribute to the explanation of patient dose variability in angiographic cardiac procedures and to derive reference levels for cardiac angiographic equipment performance parameters.
