es using a complex overhead motion system that eliminates weight on the operator and allows range of motion. When compared to the standard lead apron and tested on a mock interventionalist in a simulated clinical setting, the system greatly reduced exposures to many body areas.

A group of Dutch interventionalists, led by Sicco J. Braak, M.D., St. Antonius Hospital, Nieuwegein, the Netherlands, learned that using a recently developed needle intervention technique called cone-beam CT-guidance, or CBCT, was effective and resulted in a considerably reduced dosage for patients when compared with traditional CT-guidance. Their results are presented in "Effective Dose During Needle Interventions: Cone-beam CT-guidance Compared With Conventional CT-guidance."

The JVIR Web site (www.JVIR.org) features podcasts of short, focused interviews intended to delve into study rationale and design and implications of results for current practice and future research. Current podcasts feature the SIR Foundation's consensus panel's findings and the study of the new CT protocol. More information about the Society of Interventional Radiology, interventional radiologists and minimally invasive treatments can be found online at www.SIRweb.org.
