WM1829 Tungsten Medical Radiation Shielding Maximize

WM1829 Tungsten Medical Radiation Shielding

Tungsten alloy shields are only 1/3 of the lead (Pb)  compared to Pb shields of the same weight, but their high density gives them a comparable radiation absorption capacity as the lead. Stanford Advanced Material (SAM) provides high-quality medical radiation shielding to satisfy your needs.

Description of Tungsten Medical Radiation Shielding

Post-load radiotherapy requires the injection of radiopharmaceuticals into the body through an injection catheter. During the course of radiotherapy, radiopharmaceuticals are stored in a large tungsten alloy medical shield to protect patients and medical personnel from radiation damage.

Applications of Tungsten Medical Radiation Shielding

PET technology is mainly used to diagnose tumors, brain cells, and coronary artery lesions.

The positron emission tomography (PET) is one of the nuclear medical technologies and is mainly used for the diagnosis of diseases. X-rays pass through the human body, and PET can display the transfusion effect of a specific organ in the human body. PET technology requires the injection of deoxyribonucleic acid (FDG) into the human body, and the FDG is stored in the syringe shield and injected into the body by a syringe shield. When the FDG passes through the human body, it emits gamma rays, which are captured by the gamma camera, thereby understanding the chemical reactions of organs and cells in the human body. Abnormal chemical reactions can also be shown; these reactions are evidence of the presence of a tumor.
