Urological Intervention Procedure Head Protection
Until now, the necessity of appropriate radiation protective measures for urological interventions in the lithotomy position has not been of a peculiar interest. However a new study has shown that the scattered radiation coming out of the patient’s body leads to a high exposure to the doctor during urology interventions. Common radiation protective shields are seldomly used due to the special positioning of the patient and the confined space it creates.
The newly developed design is ideally suited for the urological workflow. The shield offers optimal protection against scattered radiation for the operator in a highly restricted workspace during urologic interventions carried out in lithotomy position. The high quality shield made of lead acrylic allows for an excellent transmittance and hence an unimpeded view.
Shield size: 78 x 90 cm (W x H)
Lead equivalent: 0.50 mm Pb
