Rigid Shield

The Rigid Shield is indicated for use in cases in which protection of tissue and/or organs from x-ray radiation is desired. The Rigid Shield can be used internally, such as during intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT), when the treatment site is surgically exposed.

For radiation oncologists and surgeons who desire an optimal shielding device to restrict low energy radiation dose up to 50 kV during breast Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) procedures, the Rigid Shield, when used in conjunction with the Axxent controller, provides protection to adjacent non-target tissues and organs during intracavitary brachytherapy procedures.

  • Is constructed of purified, biocompatible, non-toxic surgical grade stainless steel
  • Attenuates and shields the beam from low-energy radiation x-rays up to
    50kVp with >= 90% attenuation
  • Is sterilizable and reusable (up to 50 autoclave cycles)
  • Will be offered in a full set or 5 individual sizes to best fit the tumor cavity
    size: 3cm, 4cm, 5cm, 6cm, 7cm
