Lead Shielding for Medical Equipment

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.
