CT Scan Rooms / Computerized Tomography
CT Scan rooms are one of the most common x-ray rooms for medical diagnosis and prognosis. Radiation is either electrically produced or a radionuclide such as Iodine-131 is injected for complete anatomy imaging. Typical energy levels range between 120kvp and 150kvp. Room dimensions are typically larger in size from 18'0" x 20'0" and up to 24'0" x 32'0". These rooms require shielded walls, a large x-ray glass control window at least 48" wide x 36" high for a clear view of patient and procedures. Shielding must be calculated by a physicist or radiation expert retained by the facility. Shielding is based on the specific imaging equipment utilized and typically will involve several different lead thicknesses depending upon primary beam and secondary scatter radiation fields, surrounding occupancy factors and other considerations.
