Lead as a Shield in Radiology Applications
Many of the machines used by radiology medical professionals produce radiation at harmful levels. Lead is a highly effective material at preventing the penetration of x-ray beams into individuals who are near radiology equipment, such as patients and medical staff. There are a variety of ways to protect the general public from dangerous exposure to radiation in radiology departments, including lead-lined walls, doors, and ceilings.
During a radiology procedure, clinicians oftentimes must remain in the exam room, making them vulnerable to secondary radiation exposure. It is important to have proper radiation exposure protection in various venues in which radiology procedures are performed, including cardiac labs, operating rooms, interventional radiology areas, and nuclear medicine labs.
