Radiation resistant gloves are often used to offset the risk of scatter beam radiation exposure during fluoroscopy, cardiac cath lab and electrophysiology lab procedures. Each time an image is captured, the x-ray travels through the body making contact with internal structures. Multiple images are necessary for the success of these procedures, however the negative effects of scatter beam radiation exposure to the physicians and assistants can be offset by use of radiation gloves.
Our sterile radiation protection gloves are specially designed to permit the maintenance of dexterity during surgical procedures. These radiation gloves are offered sterile, by the pair in a full range of sizes, including half-sizes. We urge you not to discount the importance of the use of lead gloves for protection from harmful repeat exposure.
