    The SOMATEX® CT Eye-ProteX is implemented as effective radiation protection for the eye lens during CT examinations. In combination with X-Care, the Protector sets new standards in active radiation protection.

    The eye lens is one of the human organs that is most sensitive to radiation. During a CT examination of the head, protection of the eye lens is highly recommended, given that the ionizing radiation can result in clouding of the eye lens. At higher doses, radiation cataract (Cataracta radiationis) may even occur. CT examinations of the head especially present an even greater risk for paediatric patients.

    Reduction of radiation by up to 50%:
    The SOMATEX® Eye Protector CT-Eye-ProteX in combination with X-Care provides extremely effective results in patient protection.

    In a scientific report* from the Beuth University of Applied Sciences in Berlin, various CT eye protectors in different variants were examined in conjunction with X-Care. In an experimental comparison, the SOMATEX® CT-Eye-ProteX achieved a significant dose reduction of up to 50% in connection with X-CARE.
