X-ray exams provide detailed diagnostic and therapeutic value to practitioners that improve patient outcomes dramatically. However, the harmful effects of radiation exposure to the human body cannot be overemphasized. It is important to be familiar with the magnitude of radiation exposure and the measures that can be taken to safeguard staff and patients, including wall shielding, room shielding such as mobile barriers and curtains and wearable protection. Protective equipment and shielding devices should be used appropriately to lower the radiation exposure by as much as possible. Investing in durable, state-of-the-art and effective radiation shielding can greatly improve the quality of care for your patients while offering protection and peace of mind to clinicians and staff.
