Today, CT scans play a critical role in the diagnosis and management of most patients with complex thoracic and cardiopulmonary diseases. As the use of CT imaging increases, however, so does the risk for latent carcinogenic effects of ionizing radiation on radiosensitive tissue including the female breast.
The recently redesigned AttenuRad Breast Shield System consists of a thin (1 mm) single-piece bismuth impregnated synthetic rubber covering that mounts firmly on an offset quarter inch foam base. The breast shield system offers up to a 57% reduction of radiation exposure during a CT scan without significant changes in image quality, including artifacts and beam hardening effects. The single-piece AttenuRad CT Breast Shield is designed for multiple uses.
All breast shields supplied with .6cm foam offset.
Both adult shields are 16 cm H and are available in 42 or 53 cm Widths
Covers are sold separately, please see item # ARB-C; covering is a cost-effective addition to the Breast Shields, reducing the risk of contamination while still providing an artifact and streak-free image.
