The general x-ray room is used for taking standard x-rays such as back, neck, chest, limb, hand or foot. The patient may be lying down or standing during the procedure.Shielding for a general x-ray room is typically 2mm lead. The Radiation Protection Advisor for the hospital is responsible for advising the actual shielding required and […]
Magnetic Shielding Magnetic shielding may be required depending on the type of MRI magnet, its Tesla field strength and the location of the site. Magnetic shielding is required to reduce the spread of the 0.5mT (5 Gauss) line of the magnetic field to minimise the risk to people with pacemakers and implants, also to protect […]
Patients are injected with a radioisotope which then travels around the body & organs. The camera detects the gamma rays given off by the isotope and converts the data into a digital image of the area concerned.Shielding for Gamma camera’s can vary depending on the isotopes used etc. but is generally between 2.5 & 3.5mm. […]
This investigation is used to examine certain organs such as the stomach, intestine, and bowel. The patient is given a berium meal (dye) which is detected by the x-ray machine to produce digital images.Shielding for fluoroscopy is generally around 2mm lead. The Radiation Protection Advisor for the hospital is responsible for advising the actual shielding […]
The CT scanner is used for taking digital images of the body. Modern machines can collect a vast amount of information which can enable the radiographer to create images (slices) at almost any angle through the body. CT scans can take whole body scans and are particularly useful for looking at the bowel and liver.Shielding […]
This machine produces ‘real time’ (live) x-ray images on monitors (similar to fluoroscopy) whilst a minimally invasive procedure is carried out. A catheter is fed through an artery to the heart for diagnostic purposes or to perform therapeutic interventions.Shielding for the Cath lab is generally 2mm lead. The Radiation Protection Advisor for the hospital is […]
