LEAD APRONS FOR RADIATION PROTECTION
X-rays provide detailed images of muscles, bones, tissues, and other bodily masses, making it possible to detect fractures, tumors, and other conditions in need of treatment. Although their benefits far outweigh their risks, prolonged exposure to x-rays has been linked to an increased chance of developing various types of cancers. Lead x-ray aprons are often used to reduce exposure to both patients and personnel.
Wearing radiation protection lead aprons greatly reduces an individual's exposure to radiation. We offer three apron types which all meet or exceed recommended lead equivalency and attenuation rates, but each uses different materials to achieve this. The Regular Lead style contains 100% lead making these the heaviest apron we offer. Lead Composite aprons use a mixture of lead & other lighter weight metals making these lead aprons 25% lighter than regular lead aprons. NonLead aprons use 100% nonlead attenuating metals to provide complete protection. These aprons are the lightest weight aprons and are also 100% environmentally safe. There is no safe amount of radiation, so be sure to protect your staff and your patients with durable, high-quality X-ray aprons from Universal Medical.
