Children who undergo examinations with ionizing radiation have a higher risk of cancer. Children are more sensitive to ionizing radiation, since their bodies are developing and are more susceptible to the effects of radiation. The risk of cancer increases with a higher radiation dose. Computed tomography surveys provide many times higher dose of radiation than a conventional X-ray. X-ray examinations of children with CT scans increases despite awareness of the high radiation dose. It is important to protect radiosensitive organs in children. The aim of the study was to study the physical radiation shielding if it reduces the radiation dose to sensitive organs in children, and if there are any obstacles to use these. 11 articles were selected for review and included in the analysis. Results of the study show that physical radiation shielding reduces radiation dose to sensitive organs with some holdbacks such as artifacts and noise.
