Lead apron

  1. Hi guys,

    I have a question about putting on lead apron on patients (regardless of age /gender) when doing procedures like ORIf ankle /elbow with the big C arm. Does your hospital always follow this standard ??

    We use them. But make sure you put them in the OR arable before the patient moves on it. The radiation comes from the bottom of the C-Arm, not the top. If you put the lead on the patient after they have moved, they will still be exposed.
