Radiation protection of personnel during paediatric radiodiagnostic examination

Journal Article:

Abstract

Practical experience in paediatric radiography is reported. Keeping young children immobile during irradiation is found to be the major problem and various solutions to this are discussed in detail especially with respect to the radiation dose received by both the patient and also the radiographer. The problem of X-raying newborn babies in incubators is also discussed. It is concluded that by using suitable lead rubber shielding, the child can be physically restrained by the radiographer without significant radiation dosage being incurred.
