Head CT and general X-ray examinations can result in significant and unnecessary exposure to the lens of the eye. The single-use CT Eye Protection offers significant protection for the radiosensitive eyes during Computed Tomography (CT) procedures.
The CT Eye Protectors are the result of an extensive development to produce the most technically and cost effective shielding for patients undergoing CT or X-Ray procedures. The shields and material have been independently tested by the Radiation Protection Service, at the Department of Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering at Singleton Hospital in the UK. The performance of the materials has also been certified by the Health Protection Agency, which is a department of the National Radiological Protection Board in the UK.
The CT Eye Protectors have hypoallergenic adhesive tabs to ensure that the shield is fitted properly and the standoff is maintained consistently. They are designed for one time use to prevent possible biological contamination between patients. The shields are made from Barium Vinyl and can safely be disposed of through normal waste procedures.
