A thyroid guard or thyroid shield is a lead collar that wraps around your neck to block the radiation that’s generated in making X-ray images. Minimize increased x-ray exposure risks for all medical staff with proper thyroid radiation protection. The thyroid is very sensitive to the effects of radiation and thyroid conditions can have serious health impacts. Lead thyroid collars prevent harmful exposure to this sensitive gland.

In addition to traditional lead thyroid shields we also offer lightweight lead thyroid shields and even lead free thyroid shield protection.
