Concept: Real Salt Lake
This study sought to determine radiation exposure across the cranium of cardiologists and the protective ability of a nonlead, XPF (barium sulfate/bismuth oxide) layered cap (BLOXR, Salt Lake City, Utah) during fluoroscopically guided, invasive cardiovascular (CV) procedures.
We are fortunate to live in a time when real advances in medicine are happening at an increasingly rapid pace. This is especially true in the field of radiology, and keeping abreast of these advances is one of the main challenges of clinical practice. Traditionally, cutting edge techniques in our field have been researched and validated at major academic medical centers before slowly making their way into the armamentarium of routine clinical practice. However, the improved ability to communicate and disseminate information in our modern age has facilitated more rapid implementation of new techniques to allow us to better serve our patients.
