ClearView Radiation Shielding- Rolling Shields
The ClearView Rolling Shield is a mobile rolling shield available in lead equivalency up to 1’’ Pb.Eq. and is being used in several Theranostics suites and radiotherapies such as Ac-225 PSMA, I-123 and I-131 mIBG therapies, Lutathera (Lu-177) therapies for Neuroendocrine Tumor Treatment, FDA approved PluvictoTM (lutetium Lu 177 vipivotide tetraxetan or 177Lu-PSMA-617) for the treatment of prostate-specific membrane antigen–positive metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (PSMA-positive mCRPC). Procedures such as pediatric mIBG Radiotherapy which treats Neuroblastoma (solid tumor) in young children as young as 3 years, use I131 between 250 mCi and 1200 mCi. Post procedure, the child has to remain confined in a room alone for 3 – 5 days and interaction between the child and doctors, hospital staff, family, etc. is limited to 20 to 40 minutes in a day. Having a transparent rolling shield to protect hospital staff and allow easy patient management has proven to be very helpful for many of our product users.
