ShieldAll CT Drape

Login to view Prices

ShieldAll wraps around patients during CT scans and therefore minimises doses to organs outside the region of interest, giving approximately 10% reduction in total patient dose.

It is a lead rubber based shielding device which has been designed to provide the same level of radiation protection as 0.7mm Pb (i.e. the front and back of a 0.35mm Pb lead apron). However, the device has been constructed in a way so that the weight distribution leads to improved patient comfort when compared with using standard lead aprons.

Furthermore, ShieldAll is also easier for Radiographers to move and position on the patient and can thus lead to a reduction in moving and handling problems.
