Modern X-ray protection for today’s applications, particularly for the increase
of radial access and longer interventional procedures:
Recent studies have shown that a significant amount of radiation is emitted not
only through the gap between the patient and shield, but also from the patient itself.
Even if the shield sits directly on top of the patient, radiation travels under the
shield through the patient and is then released. To combat this, flexible strips were
added to the bottom of the shield. The special design and the flexibility of the curtain
allows it to perfectly adapt to the patient’s body without producing gaps between
the strips, reducing the scatter radiation emitting from the patient’s body in the
direction of the user.
Additionally, the second patient cut-out in combination with the flexible strips ensures
optimal radiation protection during femoral, as well as radial access procedures.
