Vet Diagnostic X-ray Equipment

When it comes to veterinary diagnostic X-ray equipment, ensuring the safety of both the animals and the professionals operating the machines is paramount. Raybloc understands the unique challenges posed by ionising radiation in veterinary radiography. Our products offer exceptional shielding solutions that effectively minimize radiation exposure risks, safeguarding both the animals under examination and the veterinary staff.

The Radiation Protection Advisor and Radiation Protection Supervisor

In the realm of radiation safety, the roles of the Radiation Protection Advisor (RPA) and Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS) hold significant importance. An RPA provides valuable guidance and expertise in managing ionizing radiation hazards, ensuring compliance with regulatory standards. At Raybloc, we collaborate closely with RPAs to enhance our products’ effectiveness, aligning them with the latest regulations and best practices. Additionally, our products assist RPSs in maintaining a safe environment for X-ray procedures.

Radiation Safety Assessment for New or Refurbished Veterinary Facilities

When setting up new or refurbished veterinary facilities that involve X-ray equipment, a comprehensive radiation safety assessment is a crucial step. Raybloc offers expertise in this aspect, aiding veterinary practices in conducting thorough risk assessments. Our radiation protection products are designed to support compliance with regulations and help create a safe imaging environment that adheres to the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle, minimising radiation exposure while producing accurate diagnostic results.

Walls and Partitions

Creating dedicated controlled areas within veterinary practices is vital to containing ionizing radiation hazards. Raybloc provides customisable radiation shielding solutions in the form of walls and partitions. These structures effectively block and absorb radiation, minimising its dispersion and protecting adjacent areas.

Lead Glass

Incorporating lead glass into veterinary radiography spaces adds an extra layer of protection without compromising visibility. Raybloc’s lead glass options are carefully crafted to provide clear visibility while shielding against ionizing radiation, maintaining a secure imaging environment.


Entrances to X-ray rooms need specialised shielding to prevent radiation leakage. Raybloc’s lead-lined doorsets are designed to safeguard against ionizing radiation, ensuring that the controlled area remains contained and secure during procedures.

Mobile Screens

For flexibility in X-ray setups, mobile screens with radiation shielding capabilities are indispensable. Raybloc’s mobile screens provide a versatile solution, allowing veterinary professionals to adjust the protective barrier according to the specific imaging requirements.

What is the minimum protection needed by the nurse while the X-ray is being taken?

The safety of veterinary staff during X-ray procedures is of paramount importance. Nurses or other personnel present during X-ray imaging should wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), including lead aprons and thyroid collars. These shielding accessories effectively minimise radiation exposure to critical organs and sensitive tissues, ensuring the well-being of healthcare professionals.

How often should X-ray equipment in a veterinarian’s office be tested?

Regular testing and quality assurance are essential to maintain the safe and accurate operation of X-ray equipment. Veterinary X-ray equipment should undergo routine performance testing and quality checks as recommended by regulatory guidelines and equipment manufacturers. Periodic testing ensures that the equipment functions optimally delivers accurate diagnostic results, and adheres to radiation safety standards.

What is the ALARA principle for veterinary surgeries?

The ALARA principle, which stands for “As Low As Reasonably Achievable,” is a fundamental concept in radiation protection. Applied to veterinary surgeries, this principle emphasises minimising radiation exposure to both animals and personnel while still achieving necessary diagnostic results. This involves using the lowest possible radiation dose and employing effective shielding measures, like lead aprons, lead-lined barriers, and proper equipment settings, to strike a balance between diagnostic accuracy and radiation safety.
