Abstract

The widespread growth of interventional angiographic procedures has expanded the use of X‐ray video systems. Reduced radiation exposure to the patient and staff has been recently reported by implementing a new pulsed progressive scanning video system. We have shown that this system, which enables the pulsing of the X‐ray generator at 30 pulses per second, results in a 50% reduction in radiation exposure. The technical parameters and implementation of a progressive scanning video system are discussed. Image quality, temporal and spatial resolution, and signal‐to‐noise ratio (SNR) were assessed using conventional interlaced and progressive video scanning. These comparisons documented improved resolution, no degradation of ejection fraction measurements, improved clinical images, and a 1.0‐dB improvement in the SNR with the progressive scanning. Progressive scanning video systems reduce radiation exposure and provide an objective improvement in image quality over conventional scanning video systems.
