X-ray radiation is a dangerous hazard for people working in interventional cardiology, and proper safety equipment is essential in areas where exposure is possible.
Radiation safety products for interventional cardiology include radiation safety glasses, lead aprons, lead gloves, x-ray mobile barriers, and other attenuating equipment. Various areas in interventional cardiology may require all, none, or some combination of these items.
