Radiology deals with radiant energy aiding the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. This medical specialty is concerned with radiation for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases using ionizing radiation such as X-Rays and non-ionizing radiation such as Ultrasound. It is further divided into two broad areas - diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology.
Today, cancer is affecting even the younger populations of women with the highest risk being to women under the age of 35. Kiran has applied its expertise in radiation protection to develop a Breast Shield that uses in-plane breast shielding to reduce cancer risk during CT scans.Offers maximum protection to the sensitive tissues of the breasts.Helps prevent breast cancer.Available in various sizes.
It has been found that radiation doses equivalent to those received during CT scans lead to an increased incidence of cancer. Infants are ten times more susceptible to carcinogenesis caused by radiation exposure than adults. The Kiran Pediatric Shield is designed to protect infants and children from radiation doses emitted during CT scans, without any compromise to image quality.
