SHIELD Study in Cath Lab Digest 

Bottom line: "Use Lead Shields!"

Cardio-TRAP®  in the August, 2017 issue of Cath Lab Digest:



A high volume transradial cath lab found the physician's head exposure reduced 64% by the Cardio-TRAP®.  Presented at ACC 2017 in Washington D.C.


A note about "studies":  Radiation reduction studies often use "phantoms" rather than actual cath lab procedures.  The results vary widely, depending on placement of the phantom and measuring devices.  When using lead-free products or claiming unrealistically high protection values, the results should be verified in "real world" Cath Lab procedures.  


Study confirms limited shielding value of disposable lead-free pads:
