Abstract

This paper the accuracy of the peak skin dose (Dskin,max) computed by theDoseMap software (DMS)—general electric and establish a local follow-up protocol for the management of patient skin injuries following complex interventional cardiology procedures (ICPs). Dskin,max was computed by the DMS and was simultaneously measured by a dense mesh of 72 thermoluminescent dosemeters for 20 ICP. Measured and computed Dskin,max were compared using Lin’s concordance coefficient (ρc). The implementation of a local follow-up strategy was based on a computed Dskin,max of 2 Gy. After eliminating 2 outliers, the average deviation between the two methods was 6%(range: −36 to +40%). Concordance between the two methods was moderate with ρc (confidence interval) of 0.9128 (0.8541–0.9486). DMS computes Dskin,max with an acceptable accuracy and can be used to setup an individual follow-up process for patients with high skin exposure and risks.
