All medical diagnostic devices that use radiation require that the device be placed in a shielding to protect the machine operator and others who may be nearby from the radiation. Lead is used to shield these radiation equipment which allow safe radiation imaging. Also, the containers of nuclear medicines and other equipment are shielded with lead to ensure safety of people around.
Radiation from equipment like x-rays, CT, MRI scanning and from radio pharmaceuticals are harmful if people are overexposed to them. Even if they are used to detect improper functioning of internal organs and to cure certain diseases, people around should be exposed to only permeable amounts of radiation. To regulate the intensity of radiations scattered by this equipment, they are shielded with lead.
Lead is the most malleable of all common metals, can be easily shaped / bent/cut and is resistant to corrosion. Due to its density, lead is the best and most affordable shielding product.
