AttenuRad CT Thyroid Shield
Positioned over the Adam’s Apple, the AttenuRad
CT Thyroid shield is designed to provide maximum to the radiosensitive
thyroid gland. To ensure tight positioning, a curved notch in the center
of the shield is placed around the Adam’s Apple and an adhesive
backing holds the shield firm as the patient breathes and swallows.
The AttenuRad CT Thyroid shield, when used for the soft tissues of the
neck, is cut to a thickness of 1 mm allowing for a 60% dose savings
to the Thyroid.
