Purpose and Application of the ST-ER Drape
The MAVIG ST-ER drape has been developed for protection of medical staff
by minimizing the scatter radiation emitted by the patient’s body.
Due to the flexible adjustment of the drape’s cut-out the cover can be adapted
precisely to the area of the primary beam, reducing scatter radiation significantly.
The radiation protection cover,
positioned on the patient’s body,
stops the majority of the scatter
radiation emerging from the patient’s
body towards the medical staff.
Through this the scatter radiation can be shielded very efficiently, therefore
allowing “to reduce the exposition of the examining staff – especially the area
of head and upper body – up to 90%.”*.

bei ERCP?“, Journal„radiologie|technologie“ No. 2/2019, S.13
Typical application: ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography),
however, a great number of applications is possible.
• Prone or dorsal position (e.g. ERCP)
• Side positioning of patient (incl. shoulder cover)
