Shields, X-Ray, Barrier

Definition : X-ray radiation shields that usually consist of a protective screen including a transparent lead-plastic section. Most of these shields are designed to provide visibility while protecting healthcare personnel from radiation when doing long term x-ray procedures (e.g., cardiac catheterization). Barrier radiation shields may be a stand-alone fixed or mobile panel or be attached to a wall-, ceiling- or table-mounted articulated arm. Some portable, usually height-adjustable barrier shields, are used for shielding patients in such procedures as chest, skull, and spine radiography.
