The CT Testicle Shields are identical to the Lead Testicle Shields in size and shape but not weight. They are made of blue silicone rubber with shore hardness of 50A. The CT Testicle Shields do not use the rubber straps as the straps are too strong for the silcone rubber.
The CT testicle shields are available in three sizes: small, medium and large. A soft cotton sock or cover can be used to cover the testicles when placing them inside a cold shield.
The CT Testicle Shields should be used with the Adjustable CT Stand. This easily Adjustable CT Testicle Shield Stand will cradle all 3 sizes of the round CT testicle shields. The holder for the testicle shield is made of PVC on this stand to minimize artifact on the CT scan. A hand knob allows for easy vertical adjustment from 1” to 10” (five turns per inch). The counter weighted base is made of cast iron. A plastic plate, secured to the base, provides easy positioning. The unit can be used for anterior and posterior treatments.
It is recommended that the Adjustable CT Stand for CT Testicle Shields (Item 926-100) be used while raising and lowering the testicle shields, as this will reduce patient discomfort.
