So Important to Protect Your Thyroid Gland While Working in Medical Imaging

The Thyroid collar is an essential protection accessory required to protect your thyroid gland. Your thyroid gland is one of the most sensitive organs in your body when it comes to radiation exposure. In fact, radiation exposure is a proven risk factor for thyroid cancer.  This small gland impacts almost all the body’s metabolic processes. Having the location close to the skin and within the trajectory of scatter radiation, it is susceptible to radiation damage and radiation-induced cancer. Moreover, the incidence of thyroid cancer has dramatically increased over the past 4 decades.

Despite these facts, many technologists are not using a thyroid shield that fits correctly or wearing one at all. Even patients are not being provided the opportunity to wear a thyroid shield for protection when the body part being x-rayed is not in the field of view. Z&Z Medical are experts in the industry when it comes to protection and for radiology healthcare professionals and the patients that are imaged. The thyroid gland should be protected from exposure with shielding whenever possible as a healthcare radiology provider and for the patients that are imaged in imaging centers every day. Make sure you have adequate protection for everyone involved. Partner with Z&Z Medical who delivers superior quality and dependable protection with every purchase.
