Echosafe® is the latest model in the range of the radiation protection cabins designed by Lemer Pax to protect operators against dangers of regular exposure to X-rays.

The cabin is designed for sonographers during TEE (Transesophageal Echocardiogram) procedures. Echosafe® is equipped with a screen displaying the fluoroscopy image. The sonographer views the images in real-time and simultaneously with the interventional cardiologist.

Echosafe® ensures a full body optimum radiation protection to the operator:

  • Scientific articles reveal that prolonged exposure to X-rays can induce numerous health complications including cerebral and thyroid tumors, cataracts, reproductive organ impairment, cutaneous cancers, vascular disease and DNA alteration. For more information, please read our White Paper on X-ray dangers in interventional cath labs
  • Echosafe® protects the sonographer irrespective of the position of the X-ray source. The cabin provides 1 to 2 mm Pb equivalence from head to foot, while PPE such as lead aprons, thyroid shields, lead glasses or visors, protect only the covered body parts with a limited radiation protection (0,5 mm eq. Pb maximum).
