  • Finding Effective Treatment with an Orthopedic Surgeon in Montana
    Orthopedic surgeons possess specialized training and education to treat patients of all ages with conditions related to their musculoskeletal system. These physicians are capable of diagnosing and treating problems and injuries involving bones, muscles, nerves and joints.
  • Use of X-Ray Aprons
    Frequent and prolonged exposure to radiation is a danger to both medical professionals and patients. In order to reduce risks, patients and medical professionals must use an x-ray apron during all radiological imaging procedures.
  • Lead Aprons: Required Protective Equipment for Occupations Using X-Radiation
    Doctors routinely use X-rays to examine broken bones such as open breaks that must be set to heal properly. The technologist performing the exam would first cover the patient with a heavy bib so that only body regions photographed are exposed to radiation.
  • Using a Thyroid Shield in the Medical Field
    A thyroid shield is a device that can be worn by health care workers or patients for the prophylactic, or preventative, treatment of radiation exposure.
  • Leaded Eyewear and Surgery to Eliminate Cataracts
    A cataract is defined as the clouding of the eye lens that is normally clear. Employees in occupations, such as physicists in cyclotron laboratories whose eyes are intermittently exposed to radiation, are at risk for cataracts.
  • Dental X-Rays and the Use of Lead Vests
    Anyone who has visited the dentist either as a child or an adult is probably familiar with dental x-rays. While most medical x-rays are performed when a bone fracture is suspected, dental x-rays are much more routine, or as close to routine as this procedure can be.
