Radiation Protection Aprons Market Analysis, Dynamics, Production, Suppliers, Regions and Forecast to 2026


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/18/2019 -- Global Radiation Protection Aprons Market: Overview

Radiation protection apron is a wearable medical device designed to protect hospital staff from harmful radiation and enhance their ability to perform their job with maximum safety, comfort, and mobility. Lead apron is the most effective personal radiation protection and should be worn by every technician in a fluoroscopy room (except the patient). Lead aprons can reduce the dose received by over 90% (85% to 99%) depending on the energy of the X-rays (kV setting) and the lead equivalent thickness of the apron. The American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology also states that the gonadal dose from dental radiography is so minimal, using a lead apron when capturing X-ray images should be considered optional unless required by law.
