Protective full-hand gloves and aprons are the minimum safety equipment required for most veterinary radiographic operations, says Philip Seibert, CVT. Thyroid collars aren't required for most veterinary radiographic operations, but they're recommended for fluoroscopic procedures or when staff members are concerned. But it's not enough to just have the equipment; you also must evaluate its effectiveness. Radiographing gloves and aprons is a simple way to evaluate their protective capabilities. You'll be able to see cracks, tears, or deformities that might not show up in a visual inspection.
