Radiation Shielding for Fluoroscopy Rooms

Primarily utilizes an electrically charged cathode tube to continually produce ionizing x-ray gamma photons during the actual imaging process to produce real time live-action images of soft tissue, anatomy, blood vessels, organs and skeletal bone structures for same time on-going medical procedures or to diagnose potential health issues. Typical energy levels range between 130kvp to 150kvp with a patient table or "iso-center" field of functional operation. Rooms are typically smaller in size from 10'0" x 12'0" and up to 16'0" x 20'0". These rooms require shielded walls and sometimes an x-ray glass control window and shielded door(s). 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.
