Radiation Fluoroscopy (Rad-Fluoro) Room

fluoroscopy room x-ray lead shielding

Fluoroscopy machines are capable of continuous x-ray imaging of both bone structure, soft tissue, and blood vessels so the movement of a body part or contrast agent (x-ray dye) can be seen in real-time

The radiation shielding requirements of a fluoroscopy room can range depending on many factors. The typical size of these types of radiation rooms also has a large range but generally is about 14' x 18' in size and the window size is typically about 48" x 36"

These rooms require lead shielded wall, windows, doors, a shielded control booth for the x-ray technician, and sometimes ceiling and/or floor shielding if the room has occupancy above or below.

Typically, the lead shielding requirements of a fluoroscopy room do not exceed 1.6mm (4#) but the shielding requirements of each room and even each wall in a room can change based on the machine, location, how often the machine will be used, and several other factors so a shielding report is always required to confirm the lead equivalency. The shielding requirements can only be determined by a licensed radiation physicist.

The glass is factory set into the frame by us before shipping and it usually only takes about 10 minutes for two people to properly install our window frame.
