Emergency Rooms (E.R.), Special Procedures and Operating Rooms (O.R.)
Utilizes non-dedicated portable x-ray machines during emergency treatment or urgent trauma diagnosis or delicate on-going medical procedures without the inconvenience of moving patients to a radiology department for imaging. Room sizes vary depending upon function and procedures. These rooms usually require shielded walls, a portable control barrier or an x-ray glass control window, and shielded door(s). Energy is typically 50kvp-125kvp. Shielding must be calculated by a physicist or radiation expert retained by the facility. Shielding is based on the specific imaging equipment utilized. Due to low frequency use and variety of angles, most shielding is minimal and usually of one or two different lead thicknesses depending upon function, estimated workloads, primary beam and secondary scatter radiation fields, surrounding occupancy factors, uncontrolled areas and other considerations.
