Burlington Medical is committed to protecting our customers from the harmful effects of repeated exposure to ionizing radiation. Typical radiation protection garments are not designed to fit around a woman’s curves. Traditional aprons that are worn lie flat across the chest, leaving the UOQ open to absorb scatter radiation. Burlington Medical designers identified this need and developed a vest to give women better protection.

Burlington Medical and Radiological Care Services care about customers.
Burlington Medical is taking a formal approach to the cleaning of x-ray garments. We are partnering with Radiological Care Services (RCS) to provide timely repairs and deep cleaning of our x-ray aprons and thyroid shields. Burlington Medical and the founders of RCS care about the safety and well-being of our customers who utilize imaging technology and the patients those garments may touch.
