Â AttenuTech supplies all the Essentials for Safe ImagingÂ® important products and devices that protect medical personnel and patients during medical imaging procedures where dangerous and harmful radiation is emitted, such as CT Scans, Fluoroscopy and NucMed Studies. As the U.S. FDA and the federal government have recently reported, even when done properly, medical imaging can damage DNA and increase a person's lifetime risk of cancer. Consequently, every dose from every medical imaging procedure is significant. Through superior strategic relationships AttenuTech is positioned to provide essential protective radiation modalities for patients and staff, per current federal agency mandates.

Harmful radiation is always present during interventional imaging cases when C-Arm or ceiling-mounted Fluoroscopy is being utilized. The research is clear, radiation is doing damage to the DNA of physicians, techs, nurses and everyone else in the room. Itâ€™s nearly impossible to quantify the immediate danger of imaging radiation to our bodies, so proper protection is vital. You canâ€™t see the radiation, you canâ€™t feel it, you canâ€™t touch it but we all know it is there. During every case that utilizes interventional imaging equipment, there is a Clear and Present Dangerâ„ to our bodies, thyroids, hands and eyes from radiation. Studies show that radiation is both linear and cumulative. Once we are exposed to it, once it is part of us, it canâ€™t be reversed and each new exposure adds to what is already there. Physicians who utilize necessary imaging equipment are in fact, â€śunavoidably irradiated in the performance of their dutiesâ€ť, and again, it is doing damage to our DNA. The message is clear where radiation is concerned. Utilize available â€śradiation protection during fluoroscopically guided proceduresâ€ť. Without question, â€śchronic radiation exposure in the workplace mandates the use of (available) protective tools in order to limit occupational radiation dose to an acceptable levelâ€ť.
What is your â€śacceptable levelâ€ť of radiation exposure? (clinical studies on file)
