The present study compares the radiation doses received by the main interventional cardiologist during the angiographic procedures. A comparison was done between the dose load during three procedures–LAD-stenting, LCx-stentingand RCA-stenting. An angiographic X-ray system Philips Allura Xper FD10 (with G-arm) was used for this study. The dose obtained was measured with an X-ray-Gamma Dosimeter 27091. The dose measurements were made for the respective projections of each angiographic procedure and for the operation modes of the equipment used during the respective procedure at three measurement points on the operator's body - head, gonads and feet. The results obtained from the calculations, based on the measured dose values, showed maximum dose load in the procedure that used the radiographic mode of operation for the longest time, namely RCA-stenting. Among the procedures using in general same times of fluorography and radiography, a higher dose load was obtained for the procedure LAD-stenting. Of the three procedures studied, the lowest dose load was obtained for the procedure LCx-stenting.

Key words: G-arm type angiographic X-ray system, dose load, interventional cardiology, Cardiology Hospital.
