Although all examinations contained numerous outliers, strong to moderate correlations were found between KAP and patient weight for the majority of procedures (see table 1).  The median (Q50) and 75th percentile (Q75) are presented for each examination as KAP per kg (see table 2).  An example of how these values translate to a variety of patient weights is illustrated in figure 1, for atrial septal defect closure. 


Other studies have reported diagnostic reference levels for all IC procedures taken together [4, 5].  Table 3 compares our IC data, taken together, with those reported in the literature.
