The Best Protective Radiation Eyewear Against Scatter Radiation

By now, you absolutely know just how sensitive your eyes are to radiation. The International Commission on Radiological Protection changed its estimates on the threshold of absorbed dose to just 0.5 Gy. There's nothing more important than proper x-ray eye protection. Fortunately, you have a wide selection of options at Z&Z Medical!


The Dangers of Radiation Exposure to the Eyes

The development of cataracts is the biggest risk of radiation exposure to the eyes. Cataracts are the result of rapid aging in the eyes, and can lead to obscured vision or even blindness, depending on the severity of the condition. Since the ICRP reduced their recommended dose, the medical community has been urged to take greater precautions. The recommended reduction is over seven times the amount of exposure, highlighting the need for all technologists and Radiology personnel to wear better protective eyewear.


Scatter Radiation Protection For Your Eyes

Radiation glasses provide superior shielding during fluoroscopic procedures so you can be sure you're protected from scatter radiation. Glasses today are lightweight and don’t slip during long procedures. All glasses come with an adjustable croaky, cleaning cloth, and safety case.


Not Sure? Try It First!

If you're not sure that a particular pair of radiation glasses is right for you, that's not a problem. Try them for 20 days and return them for a 100% refund if for some reason they don’t fit your needs. Try out a non-prescription pair of frames and see if they fit your needs before you commit. After all, you'll be wearing this pair of glasses for a long time, so you'll want to make sure they're the best fit possible.

Whatever you do, don't hesitate to get the best possible protection for your eyes. Radiation safety glasses are an absolute must, especially when working around scatter radiation. Z&Z Medical is here to help you with selecting the best pair of radiation protection glasses on the market. Let us know if you have any questions on how we can assist you with the purchase of your new glasses.

High Badge Readings Using C-Arms

Protect yourself and your staff from unnecessary scatter radiation with the use of radiation protection table drapes on your c-arm table. Radiation exposure from c-arm fluoroscopy comes from two main sources: scatter radiation from the patient and radiation leakage from the x-ray tube. Table drapes can significantly reduce the amount of radiation that affects high dosimeter badge readings by decreasing the scatter radiation. Our table drapes are manufactured with Anti-Microbial material and available in a host of Fresh Updated Colors! 

Protective Table Drapes attach quick and easy to any imaging table with hook and loop & are available in a wide variety of sizes for all your protection needs. There is no obstruction to the function of your c-arm and no obstruction to the tabletop. Our table drapes panels are sewn together unlike single panels that can easily fall off the table. Velcro is sewn at the top to easily attach to a self adhesive band placed on TOP of your c-arm table without any obstruction of the x-ray’s

Browse our table drapes to get started on a safer work environment and your best radiation protection. Have peace of mind knowing you are doing all you can to lower your radiation exposures which ultimately lower those high badge readings.
