CHOOSING YOUR PERFECT APRON
There are a number of things to consider before you buy your apron. Most notably, you should think about the apron style (front or full protection), the level of protection (core material and thickness) as well as the apron's weight.
Frontal aprons only have protection in the front, but are far more forgiving than full protection aprons. Since they contain less protective material, they tend to be lighter than full protection aprons. We always recommend the Flexback frontal apron.
Full protection aprons protect you from the front to the back. More protective material means they tend to be heavier, however, there is great diversity with full protection aprons. There can be up to a 15% difference in weight depending on which style you choose. Proper fitting, full protection aprons are also critical to ensure protection, comfort, and longevity.
Lead Equivalency: The biggest factor for x-ray protection is the lead equivalency/thickness of the inner protective material and whether to choose 0.50mm LE, 0.35mm LE, or 0.25mm LE. For procedures that are prolonged and that expose you to higher levels of kVp, it is important to use an apron with 0.50mm LE. For more moderate procedures and exposure, 0.35 and 0.25 can be considered.
The biggest factors for determining weight are: Core Materials, Lead Equivalence/Thickness, Apron Style and even Fabrics. For example, if you wanted the lightest apron, you would choose a frontal style with our Premier Lead Free inner material (approximately 23% lighter than lead) in 0.25mm LE and a Coolguard Fabric.
