Ionising radiation is a modality used in diagnostic and therapeutic medicine. The technology has improved and resulted in lower dose exposure but there has been an escalation in the quantity of procedures, their duration and complexity. These factors have meant increased occupational radiation exposure for interventionalists. Ionising radiation exposure can have detrimental health effects and includes radiation skin burns, various carcinomas, genetic and chromosomal aberrations and cataractogenesis of the lenses of the eye...

A lens with a graded refractive index is required for vision in aquatic animals with camera-type eyes. This optical design entails a radial gradient of protein density, with low density in external layers and high density in internal layers. To maintain the optical stability of the eye, different material properties are required for proteins in different regions of the lens. In low-density regions of the lens where slight protein aggregation causes significant light scattering, aggregation must be minimized...

Coronary angioscopy should permit direct inspection of the luminal cross section and identification of disease. The feasibility of introducing a 5F Olympus Ultrathin fiberscope into the obstructed right coronary artery in five patients after routine cardiac catheterization by the brachial approach was therefore tested. An 8.3F USCI woven Dacron angioplasty guiding catheter was modified to enlarge its lumen. After engaging the right coronary ostium with the catheter, an attempt was made to pass the angioscope coaxially to the tip of the catheter...
