Importance of a patient dosimetry and clinical follow-up program in the detection of radiodermatitis after long percutaneous coronary interventions.

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol. 2013 Apr;36(2):330-7, PMID: 22532335

Complex percutaneous interventions often require high radiation doses likely to produce skin radiation injuries. We assessed the methodology used to select patients with potential skin injuries in cardiac procedures and in need of clinical follow-up. We evaluated peak skin dose and clinical follow-up in a case of radiodermatitis produced during a total occlusion recanalization.
