Working practices and radiation exposure: Female cardiologists

On behalf of the EAPCI Women’s Committee, we request BCIS members to kindly complete this survey.

Previous surveys suggest that both women and men consider that the burden of workload and the overall risk linked to radiation exposure hamper women from a career in interventional cardiology. Frequently, the “risk of a pregnancy” associated to young female cardiologists discourage catheterisation laboratories directors to choose them for a fellowship and above all for a permanent position. Moreover laws about radiation exposure, and maximum allowed doses could vary from one country to another. Likewise, regulations for professionally exposed workers also vary between countries.
