Proper Use and Storage of Lead Aprons

For individuals who perform x-ray examinations or work in rooms where x-rays are used, lead aprons can reduce the radiation exposure to an individual by over 90%.  The use of lead aprons becomes even more important as the number of procedures you are involved in increases, the distance between you and the x-ray field decreases, and if you are involved in fluoroscopically-guided x-ray procedures. The amount of scatter radiation near the source of x-rays (i.e. the procedure table), especially for cases involving higher fluoro times, can result in elevated staff radiation doses.  For staff involved in fluoroscopy procedures, use of lead apron and thyroid shields is very important. Consistent use of Pb equiv garments reduces radiation exposure substantially, keeping staff dose as low as practical.

To ensure that lead aprons and thyroid shields provide the best protection possible, it is important to store them properly.  Improper storage can lead to creases, and eventually cracks in the lead, which diminishes the protection factor.  Special racks and hangers should be provided in all x-ray imaging areas. They are designed to hang aprons and thyroid shields without causing harm or damage.
