Dental Shielding

Is a shielding evaluation required?

It is the responsibility of the facility to ensure that radiation levels in adjacent areas are acceptably low. This is accomplished by completing a shielding evaluation.

Will shielding be needed in a low volume facility?

Patient workload is an important part of the shielding calculations. Low volume facilities or x-ray rooms will need less shielding than higher volume areas.
