X-Ray Grid Protectors
To produce quality X-ray images, medical professionals use X-rays grids. X-ray grids offer a series of lead and aluminum parallel lines that attract excess radiation released from the X-ray equipment. By allowing the X-ray film grid to absorb the radiation, this creates a sharper image. Radiology grids are fragile, as a result, most users will purchase X-ray grid protectors to keep them safe from damage. X-ray grids are built inside the grid protectors, available in aluminum or plastic encasements.
Grid sizing corresponds with the size of the cassette being used and are available for all cassette sizes. Easily slide or snap your cassette into the x-ray grid protector to create the most efficient image available. At Universal Medical, we offer two types of x-ray grid protection Lexan X-ray grids and aluminum X-ray grids. Both types are available in two styles, slide in X-ray grid or snap on X-ray grid protector. Each X-ray grid is offered in 85, 103, 178, or 215 lines per inch configurations with various ratios to choose from. The manufacturer of your X-ray equipment should provide you with guidelines for the X-ray grid specifications that best suits your system.
