Radiation Protection for Pediatric Patients
Radiation protection is an important consideration when it comes to pediatric patients. Children are more sensitive to radiation than adults, and therefore require special precautions to minimize their exposure.
One of the key considerations when it comes to radiation protection for pediatric patients is the use of lead shields. These shields are placed around the area of the body that will be exposed to radiation, and help to reduce the amount of radiation that reaches the child.
Another important consideration is the use of low-dose techniques. This involves using the lowest possible radiation dose that will still provide the necessary diagnostic information. This is particularly important for children, as their developing bodies are more sensitive to radiation.
It is also important to consider the child's size and weight when deciding on the appropriate radiation dose. Children are smaller than adults, and therefore require lower doses to achieve the same diagnostic results. Additionally, it is important to keep in mind the child's age, as younger children are more sensitive to radiation than older children.
Finally, it is important to be aware of the cumulative effects of radiation exposure. Children may need to undergo multiple imaging exams over the course of their lives, and it is important to keep track of the total amount of radiation they have been exposed to. This information can help doctors make informed decisions about future imaging exams and radiation treatments.
In summary, radiation protection for pediatric patients requires special considerations to minimize their exposure. This includes the use of lead aprons, thyroid collars, and shields, low-dose techniques, and limiting the number of imaging exams. Additionally, it is important to be aware of the child's size, age, and cumulative radiation exposure. Visit the Pediatric Section of our website to learn more about Pediatric Radiation Products.
