Radiation Protection in Nuclear Medicine
Proper application of radiation shielding in nuclear medicine is essential to ensure the protection and safety for both patients and technicians. Nuclear shielding is especially important for technicians who operate imaging equipment, and are subjected to repeated exposure. Of all shielding options, lead shielding offers the most effective radiation protection at increased cost-effectiveness. Lead shielding provides the most space-savings and the greatest amount of shielding to meet your nuclear medicine shielding needs and all radiation protection requirements.
Nuclear medicine shielding can be customized for each application and environment. With more than 50 years of experience, we have the expertise you need to protect personnel and patients.
