A new study conducted by MAVIG has shown, that the scattered radiation coming out
of the patient’s body leads to a high exposure to the doctor during urology interventions.
Effective radiation protection has to take into account the distinctive features of procedures
carried out in the lithotomy position. The source of the radiation is in most cases above
the table. This also adds to the high exposure rate of the doctor, especially for their head
which is usually unprotected.
Furthermore, common radiation protective shields can be seldomly used due to the special
positioning of the patient and the confined space it creates. MAVIG used this as an opportunity
to develop a new shield optimized to these specific requirements.
