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.
