A recent study demonstrates that this combination of novel head and thyroid protection is effective at reducing brain exposure and, in cases of heavy radiation exposure, should be considered in order to minimize overall radiation exposure. Pilot studies to evaluate the ability of MindPeace (patent pending, 10MD, Sweden) and HeadPeace to reduce radiation doses towards the head were recently performed by 10MD in collaboration with researchers at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Sweden. MindPeace is specifically designed to reduce radiation in the lower and middle section of the head. HeadPeace is designed to reduce radiation in the upper section of the head. A s thyroid collar was used as
