The MUNDY Fluoro-Shield™ Radiation Reduction Gloves
Orthopedic surgeons using fluoroscan should use this product. Surgeons’ hands are being exposed to more radiation than standard radiation badges reflect. Is there anything more important to a surgeon than his hands?

Anesthesiologists using fluoroscan machines to assist in pain-management procedures should use this product. These types of cases are usually scheduled in blocks, with busy surgery centers booking ten to twenty procedures in a day. That is a lot of potential radiation and consequently a good idea to protect the hands.
