English term or phrase: field light shield
"SUBJECT:
A report was received from the field that the Source Locking Device PN A112102-014 (may also be referred to as “Source Return Tool” or “T” bar) originally supplied with many Theratron units might not fit properly through the smaller opening in the *** new field light shield ***. This could prevent the source from being returned manually under emergency conditions. "

masque d'éclairage de champ
Explanation:
parallèlement à la source de radiations ionisantes, un faisceau lumineux (passant à travers des cheveux pour former le X d'une cible) et de forme plus ou moins savante (grâce à des masques -shields- éventuellement contrôlés par ordi) permet au radiothérapeute de savoir exactement où tapent les rayons (qui eux sont invisibles).
Le contrôle exact du champ est essentiel pour éviter de rendre le malade totalement radioactif... enfin presque.
les masques de la source radioactive constituent un véritable blindage ou bouclier.
