From: Prostatic artery embolization performed in anteroposterior projections versus steep oblique projections: single centre retrospective comparative analysis

  S-PAE (n = 34) AP-PAE (n = 12) P-value
Fluoroscopy time (mean ± SD, min) 57.9 ± 21.7 46.3 ± 11.1 0.084
DAP (mean ± SD,μGy.m2) 35,800.4 ± 16,819.9 22,924.9 ± 11,305.9 0.018*
Number of runs per session 23.6 ± 6.5 20.3 ± 7.4 0.188
Number of images per session 240.7 ± 66,3 217.2 ± 79.1 0.370
Contribution of acquisitions vs fluoroscopy in DAP (%) 60.6/39.4 52.1/47.9 0.226
