Hinged X-ray protection of the lower body

Hinged X-ray protection of the lower body

Safe lower body protection

Lower body protection systems are an integral part of every radioation protection concept for interventional radiology. They reduce secondary radiation substantially.

Optimal protection is ensured only with the combination of ceiling-suspended radiation protection and lower body protection with an upper shield.

The ceiling-suspended system and the upper shield protect the examiner against secondary radiation emanating from the patient’s body.

The lower body protection absorbs radiation underneath the table and shields the lower extremities and genital area of the examiner.
