Resumen

UBEDA, Carlos et al. Updating radiological protection for interventional procedures in pediatric cardiology in Chile. Rev Chil Cardiol [online]. 2022, vol.41, n.1, pp.28-33. ISSN 0718-8560.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-85602022000100028.

An article on the status of radiological protection during procedures of interventional cardiology in pediatric patients in Chile was published in 2013. The present article relates the continuing efforts to improve radiological protection highlighting their results and proposing additional measures to improve radiological protection during the procedure.

Since 2013 we have continued the evaluation of radiation doses, image quality, and X Ray systems used in Chile. We have measured diffused radiation dose at operator´s eye and ankle levels to elaborate a “Reference guide” according to patient´s age and weight. However, we still lack a national regulatory norm for the X Ray systems to be used and for the appropriate training of those involved in procedures of interventional cardiology in pediatric patients.

Palabras clave : radiologic protection; interventional cardiology; pediatric.
