英文摘要: Objective(#br)To describe cumulative radiation exposure in a large single-center cohort of children with congenital heart disease (CHD) and identify risk factors for greater exposure.(#br)Study design(#br)A detailed medical radiation exposure history was collected retrospectively for patients aged <18 years who underwent surgery for CHD between January 1, 2001, and July 22, 2009. Cumulative per patient exposure was quantified as the effective dose in millisieverts (mSv) and annualized (mSv/year).(#br)Results(#br)A total of 4132 patients were subjected to 134 715 radiation examinations at a median follow-up of 4.3 years (range, 0-8.6 years). Exposure clustered around the time of surgery. The median exposure was 14 radiologic tests (the majority of which were plain film radiographs) at an...
