Customers often ask about the need for lead protection when using U-arm X-ray machines. The users targeted here refer to hospitals or factory workshops that use industrial X-ray machines. Using a U-arm X-ray machine for filming or fluoroscopy inspection means that at the moment of exposure, the X-rays emitted will not be completely absorbed by the subject to be tested. The scattered rays that are not absorbed will cause radiation to the surrounding objects or the human body, which is harmful to the human body. If there is injury, the greater the dose, the greater the harm to the human body, especially those who operate the U-arm X-ray machine, who need long-term exposure to the X-ray machine to control the exposure.
The state stipulates that all U-arm X-ray machines must be used for lead protection. Lead protection mainly includes lead room, lead glass, and lead clothing for humans. After the construction of the lead house is completed, it is necessary to file with the local environmental protection bureau and apply for a safe use permit.
It is recommended that users check the national regulations and consult a professional lead protection company to design the best lead protection scheme according to your U-arm X-ray machine model, room area and actual use requirements.
