How does the X-ray machine achieve radiation protection?

X-ray machines incorporate several features to ensure radiation protection. The primary method involves the use of lead shielding, a dense material that effectively absorbs and attenuates X-rays, preventing them from reaching unintended areas and minimizing exposure to surrounding tissues. Lead aprons and barriers in the examination room further shield individuals from scattered radiation. Collimators focus X-ray beams precisely on the target area, reducing unnecessary exposure to surrounding tissues. Additionally, modern X-ray machines employ automatic exposure control mechanisms to optimize radiation doses based on individual patient characteristics and imaging requirements. Routine maintenance and calibration of equipment ensure its proper functioning, minimizing the risk of leaks or malfunctions that could result in increased radiation exposure. Strict adherence to safety protocols, ongoing training for operators, and regulatory guidelines contribute to the overall radiation protection measures in X-ray imaging.
