Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Air Kerma [ Time Frame: 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The investigators will measure Air Kerma (cumulative) at the end of the procedure of coronary angiography.

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Operator radiation exposure [ Time Frame: 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    operator radiation exposure will be measured by a personal dosimeter worn by the operator outside the lead apron on the vest pocket.

Enrollment: 1500
Study Start Date: February 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Coronary angiography procedures performed using transfemoral access
Left radial access
Coronary angiography procedures performed using left radial access site.
Right radial Access
Coronary angiography procedures performed using Right radial access site.

Detailed Description:
Patients referred for coronary angiography will be randomized to either left radial, right radial or femoral arterial access sites, and the coronary angiogram will be performed in a standard fashion, including left ventriculography. Radiation exposure parameters including Air Kerma, Dose-area product, Fluoroscopy time and Operator radiation exposure will be recorded. Operator experience as well as demographic data will be recorded.
