Abstract: The aim of our investigation was to prospectively measure the patient radiation exposure from different cardiological procedures performed in the Catheterisation laboratory of the University Hospital Gasthuisberg in Leuven. The following local reference values were proposed: 40, 47 and 80 Gycm2 for coronary angiography (CA) or angioplasty (PTCA and stent implantation for elective patients), radio frequency ablation with angiographic images and CA plus ad hoc PTCA, respectively.
