An x-ray gown is simply necessary if you are operating x-ray machines as part of your job description. While each session may not pack a punch, you are conducting a lot of X-rays and hence, seeing an unusual amount of radiation.
We are here to ensure that you never face any health complications because of the brave work you do for the men, women, and children that come to your hospital. Our gear is made to keep those harmful rays away from you.
We made sure that they didn’t just keep you safe; they were also stylish and super comfortable. You have the right to look and feel your best at any given moment. Let’s look at how our gear makes sure of these things.
Why You Need Reliable Protection
Here is the thing: many people think radiology is an easy career. You just sit and operate some equipment for a few hours and you get to go home earlier than other doctors.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. For starters, radiologists need a lot of training. Just like any other medical profession, they have a long academic journey followed by a grueling professional training period.
Also, there is a reason why they get to go home early. Believe it or not, radiology is one of the most dangerous professions out there. We already briefly mentioned how much radiation they are faced with but let’s put it into perspective.
As we’ve said, a single x-ray exposes you to negligible amounts of radiation. This radiation will have no effects whatsoever. You face similar amounts in the form of background radiation.
Multiply this by a hundred or even a thousand and that’s what a radiologist faces in his lifetime. This much radiation can never be a good thing.
What makes it so bad? Radioactive exposure can lead to cancer. It has earned its reputation as one of the scariest ailments and you should take any and all precautionary measures against it.
Short working hours is just one of those measures. You also need to keep as much distance as possible. Unfortunately, you’ll never quite get enough distance.
Xrays can travel 300,000 km in the air. You can’t really operate from that far, can you? The keyword here was air. There are a lot of materials that can cut this trajectory short.
Our X-Ray Gown Has Lead In It
Lead is our favorite. That is why our gear is layered with it. Lead has an impressive density, meaning that the X-rays can’t penetrate it.
On top of that, it’s malleable. We can shape it however we want. This allows us to give you both safety and comfort in one stylish package.
Last but least, you’d be hard-pressed to find a cheaper material. Because of its sheer abundance, lead is inexpensive. Other dense materials such as gold and platinum are rare and so cost a fortune.
Not only are we saving money by using lead but we’re also saving resources for the planet. That’s a win-win in our books.
So what are you waiting for? Call us now and get a brand new x-ray gown. Keep yourself safe with our premium gear.
