Patient Table Reduces Scatter Radiation in the Cath Lab

The Egg Medical EggNest cath lab patient table is designed with passive protection designed to drastically reduce scatter radiation exposure for the entire cath lab team without disruption to workflow.

We started our design from the ground up, tested many prototypes, did not want to compromise on radiation protection for any staff in the room no matter where they stood. 

The Egg Medical EggNest cath lab patient table is designed with passive protection designed to drastically reduce scatter radiation exposure for the entire cath lab team without disruption to workflow. The table aids patient comfortable while protecting the interventionalist, electrophysiologist, biopsy proceduralist, the scrub tech, circulating nurse, TEE cardiologist, the trainee and others in the lab, regardless of where they are standing in the room. 

The company said the table offers a comprehensive, scatter radiation protection system. It has integrated shielding that moves with patient, swings with X-ray C-arm system, providing passive protection.
