SCAI WIN Symposium: Cases in Structural Heart Disease
Concern about radiation exposure is a known reason why women do not go into cardiology, we’re about to change that. To ensure all workers are protected from radiation, particularly pregnant Cardiologists, SCAI is pleased to endorse Women as One’s launch of “Radiation Safety in the Practice of Cardiology: What all Women Need to Know,” an interactive slide set aimed to educate all members of the care team on the basics of radiation safety, and the specific implications for those members who are pregnant while performing procedures in clinical environments which use radiation. The goal is to ensure workplaces are equipped with accurate, evidence-based information and to encourage policies and regulations which match the underlying data.
