Paper Abstract

Digital intravenous angiography may replace a substantial fraction of conventional angiographic procedures in the near future. The major advantages of this technique are reduced patient risk, lower cost and the fact that it can be readily performed on an outpatient basis. As with all radiologic procedures, patient radiation exposure must be considered in the overall evaluation of risk versus benefit. To this end, the radiation dose to patients undergoing routine head and neck intravenous angiography have been measured.
