AttenuRad CT Breast Shield System (Female Pediatric)
Studies have indicated that infants and children are
ten times more susceptible to carcinogenesis from radiation than adults.
Breast tissue exposed to radiation from CT procedures involving the
chest or abdomen is an area of particular concern for young females.
The AttenuRad CT Breast Shield System provides significant in-plane
breast shielding (57%) for pediatric MDCT, without qualitative or quantitative
changes in the CT image. The use of the system’s offset foam base
gives the shields additional substance and durability, making them easy
to use. The use of the elevating foam also decreases the patient’s
exposure to scattered radiation.
