B Image generation in a flat panel detector. c Layout of the segments of a flat panel detector. 25 mm): reduction of scatter radiation exposure to 4 % of baseline value ▶ Protective measures to minimize procedure-related radi- ation exposure of the patient and operator ― Reduce duration of fluoroscopy and cine time to no more than is necessary. Radiation dose during image generation is ~10 to 15 times higher than during fluoroscopy. ― Use pulsed fluoroscopy. ― Insert copper filters. ― Minimize the distance between patient and image intensifier.

Surrounds the tube, and the heat is then radiated off from the housing. In catheterization systems only rotating anodes are used. With anode rotation (3,000–10,000 rpm) the incoming electrons affect not a single focal spot but a focal spot track, so that the heat produced is distributed. The tubes are double-focus tubes with two focal spots of different sizes. 8 mm) is less limited by heat production, which can damage the anode, and is used in adult cardiology. 3 mm) produces images with smaller geometric unsharpness.

E oroscopy. It can then be determined whether it makes sense to continue the procedure via this access site. If initially the guidewire can be advanced easily into the artery for a few centimeters and then resistance is noted that precludes advancing the wire further, a possible cause other than local stenosis or vessel occlusion is dissection of the vessel wall with intramural location of the guidewire. In the case of dissection, it is not possible to turn the J-tip any further and the tip straightens when the guidewire is retracted.
