Abstract

This study was performed to analyze the average X-Ray duration required by a single interventionist to perform hemodialysis vascular access procedures. The average amount of radiation released by the C-arm for five different categories of procedures performed over a 9 month period was calculated from X-Ray usage data compiled on Braintree software. These procedures included: fistula angioplasty, graft angioplasty, tunneled catheter insertion and exchange, as well as graft thrombectomy. From the data, one may conclude that the radiation amount released coincides with the complexity of the procedure type.
