What impact does the X-ray grid lead content have on radiation dose to patients and staff?

The lead content of an X-ray grid is crucial in minimizing scattered radiation and enhancing image quality. The grid absorbs scattered X-rays that deviate from the primary X-ray beam, improving the contrast of the final image. However, higher lead content increases attenuation, potentially requiring adjustments in exposure factors to maintain image quality. The impact on patient dose is generally minimal, as the primary beam is mostly unaffected. For medical staff, scattered radiation can contribute to occupational exposure. While lead in the grid effectively reduces this exposure, the overall impact depends on grid design, grid ratio, and positioning. Regular assessment and optimization of exposure factors, along with adherence to safety protocols, are essential to balance image quality, patient dose, and staff radiation exposure. We are a manufacturer of X-ray machines and their accessories.
