Lower body protection systems are an integral part of every radioation protection
concept for interventional radiology. They reduce secondary radiation substantially.
Optimal protection is ensured only with the combination of ceiling-suspended
radiation protection and lower body protection with an upper shield.
The ceiling-suspended system and the upper shield protect the examiner against
secondary radiation emanating from the patient’s body. The lower body protection
absorbs radiation underneath the table and shields the lower extremities and
genital area of the examiner.
Note: For tables that do not permit the attachment of a lower body protection
to the accessory rail MAVIG offfers special solutions.
