Advances in X-ray technologies has led to radiation becoming common place in medical facilities. The same principles behind shielding X-Rays in high-energy physics research can be applied to X-rays used in medical practices. Medical facilities employing radiation require X-ray tight rooms; the preferred materials to achieve this are lead-lined plywood and sheetrock.
These materials are covered to prevent any lead exposure, and allow for an aesthetically pleasing design that will go unnoticed by patients. ADC can provide shielding for all kinds of applications; such as radiotherapy, X-ray imaging and CT scans.
In many instances, Lead Glass is used to allow personnel to view into the room and monitor patients while keeping personnel protected. To further promote safety, doors can be integrated with the radiation source to ensure they cannot be opened while radiation source is activated.
