Abstract

The benefits of cardiac imaging are well documented and modern medicine indisputably requires the use of such versatile and useful techniques[1]. However, advances in medical imaging and procedural technology utilising radiation, have resulted in an increase in radiation exposure to cardiovascular patients[2]. Therefore it is of vital importance that consent be sought from patients after they have been informed about the relevant radiation risks.1 Fur-thermore, it is imperative that these risks are descried in a uni-versally harmonised way, understood by all practitioners so as to maintain the most efficient and accurate benefit/risk com-munication system with patients internationally.3
