, , Leave a comment

12/22/2023- Middlesex, NJ: Fluoroscopy, a medical imaging technique that uses X-rays to obtain real-time moving images within a patient’s body, has revolutionized the field of diagnostic medicine. However, the associated exposure to ionizing radiation necessitates rigorous safety measures. Mobile lead shields have become indispensable, playing a pivotal role in mitigating radiation exposure risks during fluoroscopy procedures.
