Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We constructed a retractable radiation protection shield for use in the CT scanning room. The shield is placed between the patient and the radiologist while the radiologist injects the contrast medium for CT studies. In this report we describe the construction of this radiation protection shield and its usefulness in decreasing the radiation exposure to radiology personnel.
