CT Shields - Pediatric Scan Shields are designed to reduce the risk for latent carcinogenic effects of ionizing radiation on radio-sensitive tissues during a CT scan without significant changes in image quality. Our Pediatric Breast Shields are available in multiple sizes and quantities and can be reused as long as they keep color, flexibility and show no signs of cracking.
CT Shield studies indicate significant organ and effective dose reductions have been achieved through the use of shielding during CT examinations and it is therefore recommended that out-of-plane shielding devices should be used for all CT scans, irrespective of body part. CT Shields are available for the protection of many different body parts in several sizes and styles dependent upon the particular procedure and scan being used.
