Doctors no longer have to fear about Radiation Exposure

Radiation exposure among doctors working in the radiological department is a grave problem. Martin Magram, MD, a researcher and assistant professor at the Department of Diagnostic Radiology // at the University of Maryland Medical Center has come up with a new technique to help doctors. He has developed a device that would not obstruct their movement and would allow them to perform their routine job at the same time prevent radiation exposure. Radiation exposure usually occurs while performing coronary angiographies on patients.

With this device the doctors can monitor the angiograms and control the examination table movement from behind a lead plastic shield by means of an extension bar. This device is of great help to the doctors than the conventional heavy lead gowns. But these gowns are not comfortable and after awhile doctors develop neck or back degeneration problems due to the weight of the heavy lead gowns. During the study Dr. Magram was happy to find that about 90 % of the radiation exposure is avoided to the physician’s head, arms and legs using the extension bar and lead plastic shield equipment.
