Protection Especially for Seated Activities
Radiation protection aprons are already standard equipment in different departments, e.g. urology, anaesthesia, etc.. However, the currently used front protective aprons are designed for standing positions. But especially in the above mentioned departements, some interventions are performed with the operator in a seated position. This holds the risk that the gonads will be exposed to a considerably higher dose than when standing when a regular front protective apron is used.
(Horsburgh et al: “A Study of Occupational Radiation Dosimetry During Fluoroscopically Guided Simulated Urological Surgery in the Lithotomy Position”)
The main reason for this is the gap in the radiation protection that occurs due to the apron resting on the knees.
Perfect Protection against Radiation
For this purpose, a special gonad protector is attached on the inside of the apron. When sitting in front of a patient, facing forward, this protector hangs down protectively in front of the gonads, while the apron lies on the legs.
