We retrospectively analyzed the radiation dose for all TIPS performed over a four-year period with transabdominal ultrasound guidance for PV puncture (n=212, with 210 performed successfully and data available for 206); fluoroscopy time, dose area product (DAP) and skin dose were recorded.
With leading-edge solid state Automatic Exposure Control for high-speed accuracy and collimators with Dose Area Product meter, the DR 600 optimizes and automatically reports doses.
The fluoroscopy time and dose area product (DAP), air kerma (AK) can be displayed directly by the system.
