Radium Incorporated has over 15 years of experience providing radiation protection solutions helping professionals work safely in high dose environments.

Radium has invented a patented transparent gamma radiation shield ClearView Radiation Shielding, which is significantly lighter than lead. Attenuation testing has been performed at Accredited Dosimetry Calibration Laboratory (ADCL),by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM). The results have been published in the Health Physics Society. Independent testing has been performed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and C.S.Mott Children's Hospital.

ClearView shields have been used for protection of nuclear medicine technologists caregivers and hospital staff during inpatient radiotherapy shielding and nuclear medicine departments in hospitals. ClearView can be fabricated in any shape and size and has been used in MIBG therapies and finding application in Lu-177 therapy dose administration. ClearView RS shields are highly effective for radioisotope suppliers and radwaste management

  • WAYNESBORO, Va., May 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radium Incorporated ( Radium ) announced today that it has been issued a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a new type of transparent radiation shield. Branded as ClearView Radiation Shielding™, the proprietary shielding solution is 50% lighter in weight than lead (Pb) for an equivalent attenuation from high energy gammas and shields significantly better than lead glass.

    “We needed a lightweight but effective shielding solution for a product that we were developing and nothing available in the industry met our requirements,” said Cam Abernethy, President of Radium Incorporated. “Through our development and testing of different materials, we developed a solution that was transparent, non-toxic, and can take on any shape.”

    U.S. Patent No. 10,262,763 is titled “Systems, Devices, and/or Methods for Managing Radiation Shielding” and comprises 20 claims. ClearView Radiation Shielding has been successfully used in the nuclear, medical, and radiopharmaceutical industries for over two years. ClearView has extensive applications with ongoing product development from medical and industrial equipment to wearable shields for space applications and first responders.

    “In the medical field, ClearView offers successful high radiation dose reduction for inpatient radiotherapy procedures to hospitals like Boston Children’s for caregiver protection and other nuclear medicine applications. Hospitals will not have to reject baseline anxious patients and patients will be more willing to undergo therapy if they know they will not be secluded for days. Using ClearView will substantially support the healthcare industry,” said Jayeesh Bakshi, Nuclear Engineer at Radium Incorporated.

    “Use of the ClearView transparent rolling shields has been well received by staff, patient and family members compared to the conventional opaque lead shields. Healthcare providers and caretakers have the ability to visibly monitor and see the patient in radiation isolation while allowing us to adequately provide sufficient measures of radiation protection.” - Bae P. Chu, Health Physicist, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

    “We recently treated our first patient using the ClearView shielding. The patient, the family, and our staff loved it. Having the ClearView shields is a tremendous improvement for our patients. We can’t thank you enough.” - Greg Yanik MD, Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital, University of Michigan Health System.

    With increasing FDA approvals such as Lu-177 and successful clinical studies such as I-131 MIBG therapy for using radiation therapy, Radium’s ClearView Radiation Shielding is positioned well in the medical market for new product development for safer dose administering, enhancing patient communication and relieving anxiety during diagnosis and treatment of adult and pediatric cancers.

    Radium is providing transparent shielding to DOE laboratories and nuclear power plants for daily operations and outage support. Being a lightweight and see-through shield, ClearView has helped improve working conditions and efficiency in ways which were not possible with traditional shielding materials. Radium has other patent pending applications and claims for this product.

  • ClearView RS Rolling Shield
    Rolling Shields for caregiver and hospital staff protection, replacement to lead shields....

  • ClearView Radiation Shielding rolling shields protect against I-131.

    • A Large viewing window, 30’’ high x 24’’ wide’’ which enables the caregiver viewing and whole-body radiation protection while taking care of the patient.
    • The frame is fabricated out of lightweight aluminum with powder coat paint.
    • The shield is locking rollers which will enable its ease of transport and movement.
    • Support legs slide under the bed without causing any obstruction.
    • The ClearView shield can be moved easily where a family member can stand or sit while being able to view the patient, they would not need to leave the room.
    • Two ClearView shields can be used side by side to create a larger viewing window if desirable.

    Using ClearView RS Shields helps an overall better patient experience. Baseline anxious and unstable patients who will be hard to manage when left in isolation behind lead walls, have shown to have significant reduced anxiety while using ClearView RS shields. Patients who refuse undergoing therapy will have a much better control on themselves when they can see their family members and have an interaction with the caregiver. They will not feel locked in a box.
