ScatterGuard, a Protech Medical brand, is comprised of disposable Smart Caps (head protection), disposable thyroid collar covers, and disposable ScatterGuard Drapes as well as CT eye and thyroid shields. With complete protection from head to toe, ScatterGuard’s broad range of disposable products provides specialized protection with convenience.
ScatterGuard products are available in three lead equivalences: 0.125, 0.25, and 0.375mm LE. Protection requirements are dependent on the intensity of the beam and cumulative exposure to x-ray. Protech recommends that the base level of protection, 0.125mm LE, be used in all procedures using x-ray or fluoroscopy with additional protection (0.25 & 0.375) being used in cases of prolonged exposure or higher dosage potential.
