The BMC2 publication, “Statewide Initiative to Reduce Patient Radiation Doses During Percutaneous Coronary Intervention,” was recently published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions.

Authors Ryan D. Madder, Milan Seth, Kathleen Frazier, Simon Dixon, Milind Karve, John Collins, Ronald V. Miller, Elizabeth Pielsticker, Manoj Sharma, Devraj Sukul, and Hitinder S. Gurm found that – concurrent with the conduct of a statewide initiative to reduce procedural radiation doses – a progressive and significant decline in procedural radiation doses was observed among patients undergoing PCI in the state of Michigan.
