Abstract

Dialysis vascular access procedures are x-ray guided interventions that function to correct issues with patients’ vascular accesses- which include fistulas, grafts, and dialysis catheters. This study analyzes the amount of x-ray exposure to interventionists for each of the major vascular access procedures. The goal of this analysis is to signal out the procedures that result in the greatest amount of radiation exposure, therefore prompting interventionists to implement strategies to reduce it.

Retrospective Analysis of X-Ray Usage in Vascular Access Procedures

Dialysis vascular access procedures are x-ray guided interventions that function to correct issues with patients’ vascular accesses- which include fistulas, grafts, and dialysis catheters. This study analyzes the amount of x-ray exposure to interventionists for each of the major vascular access procedures.
