Tungsten Eye Shields
For Electron & Superficial Shielding
Tungsten eye shields have been developed to provide greater shielding than lead for the same thickness and superior electron scatter properties. Tungsten eye shields can be gas sterilized or autoclaved. Each tungsten eye shield has a removable 1mm thick and 0.5mm thick anodized aluminum cap (both are included with each eye shield) that additionally reduces radiation backscatter to the eyelid. The entrance dose rate will determine whether the 1mm or 0.5mm aluminum cap is to be used. The eye shields can be used without the aluminum cap when treating superficially. Tungsten shields are available in 2mm and 3mm thicknesses and five different diameters. A stainless steel knob provides a convenient handle.
