Philips lauds x-ray dose study

Philips Healthcare is highlighting the results of a study in which Dutch electrophysiologists reduced x-ray radiation dose by 42% by using Philips' AlluraClarity angiography technology.

Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, spearheaded a clinical study involving the treatment of 136 patients with complex heart rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation (AF). Using Philips' AlluraClarity system with ClarityIQ technology, electrophysiologists at the hospital were able to reduce patients' exposure to x-ray radiation by 42% while maintaining image quality.

At the same time, the electrophysiologists' exposure to x-ray radiation was reduced by 50% to 3 µSv per procedure.
