Hong Kong researchers develop safer alternative to lead in X-ray shields

April 2017, Polytechnic University researchers have created a safer, lighter X-ray shield by mixing the metal used in light bulb wires with a common plastic. The combination of tungsten and polyurethane offers 40 percent more protective than lead, which is conventionally used to protect people from radiation during X-ray procedures, yet it is 22 percent lighter.

 “The material is non-toxic and can be recycled and processed into protective clothing,” said Fei Bin, associate professor at the university’s institute of textiles and clothing, who led the team.

Increase in the number of diagnostic imaging centers to drive the growth in the market

Factors such as rising use of nuclear medicine and radiation therapy for diagnosis and treatment purpose to trigger the growth of this market. Furthermore, increase in the number of diagnostic imaging centers due to growing frequency of chronic diseases such as cancer, prompt installation of radiology equipment, necessities of supporting accessories such as radiation shielding tools and other related equipment are also driving the growth of medical radiation shielding market.

Additionally, huge amount of ionizing radiation exposure can also lead to disturbing health impacts such as cancer, tumor and other severe side effects so as a result the necessity for protecting patients from harmful radiations while working under such conditions radiotherapy suites are designed. Moreover, increasing consciousness about safety while handling radio-active equipment is further estimated positive growth in medical radiation shielding market. In diagnostics centers having proper radiation shielding is significant in order to confirm the safety of its medical staff as well as of their patients. Strong growth in developing nations will create opportunities for the medical radiation shielding market.
