Lead Shielding Materials
Lead shielding refers to the use of lead to safeguard against scatter radiation. Lead shielding helps protect from radiation because of its high molecular density. Effective at stopping gamma rays and x-rays, lead is used as radiation protection in applications ranging from x-ray imaging and PET rooms to nuclear reactors.
