Veterinary 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 the entire x-ray room need shielding?

Veterinary x-ray shielding needs depend on many variables. Due to workload and the type of areas adjacent to the x-ray room, some or all of the walls may need shielding.
