SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
Is it just because of the lead or from standing so much? Hopefully fluoroless techniques will reduce some of thatSeriously. Already have a herniated disk myself.
Cancer certainly a thought far back in my mind though pretty much every interventional cards or EP I know has had some sort of ortho issue.

What is the cause?
Reportedly two local electrophysioogists got the same type of rare brain cancer a few years ago. Within a few months of each other even.
it’s all hearsay, but still gives me pause
Depends a lot on your clinical practice. It’s about the same between EP and IC on average. CRT, LV and extraction cases use a ton. Some are moving towards reduced or zero fluoro for ablation. I still think you should be more worried about your back, get zero gravity if possible and buy lightest lead possible. Remember some cases (VT substrate mod) can be 7-8 hours Standing.But doesn't EP has one of the lower radiation exposure? A high volume IC i would imagine are at a much higher risk of radiation exposure esp those who does a lot of peripheral cases.
