CT Scanner Shielding

Do different CT machines and models have different shielding needs?

Shielding in CT is dependent on many variables including the radiation output characteristics if the specific machine and model.

Do floor and ceilings need shielding?

Floors and ceiling are barriers to radiation, just like the walls and may need shielding. The lead equivalency of concrete in these barriers will eliminate or reduce the shielding needed.
