Shield Yourself From Scatter Radiation
LockBlock provides up to 78% GREATER scatter radiation protection vs. the leading radiation protection drape. LockBlock in conjunction with a radiation drape provides up to 88% TOTAL PROTECTION.1
LockBlock provides enhanced scatter radiation protection between the physician and image intensifier, protecting the physician’s hands and body parts from the most critical pathway of scatter radiation. Contrary to the ergonomic limitations using standard protection devices, LockBlock can easily be moved or repositioned, minimizing scatter radiation at the epicenter of the procedure without obstructing views or workflow.
LockBlock’s fan shaped design also provides a barrier against fluid exposure and can be used in hospital and healthcare settings where multi-drug resistant skin pathogen containment is mandatory.

The equipment used was a General Electric Advantx 80kW high frequency x-ray unit. The test parameters were; 70, 85, and 105kVp (these correspond to most common fluoroscopic conditions at 80kV, a high kV condition for a standard fluoroscope at 100kV, and a condition corresponding to scatter produced from CT scanning at 130kV), HVL 3.4, 4.0, and 5.1mm Al respectively, 250mAs, and 0.1 second exposure time.
