Without protection, X-rays can be dangerous to patients and medical personnel, no matter how useful the X-ray examination is. High-quality X-ray protective clothing is therefore essential to best protect those present during an X-ray examination from X-rays. In our store you will find a wide range of X-ray protective products.
Ionizing X-rays can quickly become dangerous to humans and cause health problems. Parts of the body that are not examined with X-rays should therefore be protected from radiation as much as possible by an X-ray apron. The gonads need reliable protection and should be covered with an X-ray apron. This prevents the gonads from undergoing a change in their genetic makeup. The DocCheck apron provides appropriate protection for the gonads during X-ray examinations of the chest or upper abdomen.
Medical personnel are also exposed during x-ray examinations. Therefore, it is recommended that personnel wear an X-ray apron as protective clothing that covers the front of the body during X-ray examinations. Radiation protection can be worn comfortably over practice clothing and safely protects the front part of the body facing the X-ray machine.
X-ray aprons are made of different materials. There are X-ray aprons made of pure lead, X-ray aprons made of low-lead material and lead-free X-ray protection. The different X-ray aprons for radiation protection of patients and staff differ in weight, protective effect and the amount of fluorescent radiation produced upon impact of the X-rays. The lead equivalent required for use in a clinic or medical practice must be determined individually and, as a rule, by a radiation protection officer.
Special wall holders are an optimal addition to practice equipment for storing X-ray protective clothing. This allows you to store your X-ray protective clothing clearly and always within easy reach.
