Reduction of Operator Hand Exposure in Interventional Radiology with a Novel Finger Sack Using Tungsten-Containing Rubber
from Health Physics
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the x-ray shielding ability of a novel tungsten-particle-containing rubber-based finger sack for use in interventional radiology. Shielding rates for the air kerma (mGy m) were measured using a semiconductor dosimeter with and without the finger sack and commercial lead gloves, at a 20 cm distance from the field of view.
