Definition The x-ray attenuating cream is intended for use as a radiation shield. It is intended to be applied to the user's hand before donning gloves, or it may be applied on a gloved hand, followed by donning a second glove. The X-ray attenuating cream is intended to be used during medical procedures where its necessary for hands to be exposed to radiation to offer some degree of protection from radiation exposure.
Physical State X-ray attenuating cream
Technical Method The device consists of a non-toxic, non-heavy metal, radiation absorbing material in a formulated base. Radiation is blocked by the device via absorption of the photon energy from ionizing radiation. This photon energy is dissipated as phonon energy within the atomic lattice structure of the radiation absorbing material.
