In recent years there has been increasing awareness of the possible deleterious effects of chronic, low dose radiation to which interventionalists are exposed during endovascular procedures. Our group and others have detected markers of exposure in the blood of operators, particularly during complex interventions.

This 5 minute survey is aimed at assessing not only attitudes towards radiation protection but also to determine whether clinical indicators of chronic exposure are more common in members of the endovascular intervention community.

Thank you in advance.
