    Author(s): Shaban Alramlawy* and I Maamoun

    Evaluating the hazards and beneficiary of cardiac imaging for patients is considered of high concern. There is a lack of information about the harm associated with cardiac modalities. Aim: Comparison of different cardiac imaging modalities in terms of patient dose. Method: 120 patients (weight=85 ± 10 Kg and Age=50 ± 10) are divided into three groups according to cardiac diagnostic procedures (A): n=40, SPECT (Siemens Symbia), Injected activity=950 MBq for stress/rest on two days); (B): n=40, Fluoroscopy (Siemens), The fluoroscopy average time and cine-modes was 4.2 ± 1.8 min and 10.7 ± 2.9 min respectively) and (C): n=40, CT Coronary (Philips 256), KV=120, MA=300). Results: CT Coronary (Gp.C) is highly significant patient dose (p<0.005) than SPECT (Gp.A). Where the average effect.. Read More»
