RADPAD® Absorbs Scatter Radiation

RADPAD® Radiation Protection Shields are used by physicians and cath lab personnel during fluoro-guided procedures to protect them from the harmful effects of ionizing x-radiation. Placed on the patient in front of the operator, RADPAD® works by absorbing scatter radiation coming from the patient and creating a “shade zone” for the cath lab team to work in during interventional procedures. All RADPAD® Radiation Protection Products are non-lead and PVC-free products. They are procedure specific and designed for single use.

Testimony of Clinical Need for Radiation Protection

“72 million CT scans are performed annually in the United States, which is about one scan for every four people in the country…which could account for roughly 29,000 future cancer cases each year!”¹

“In 2013, a scientific consensus was reached that even just one CT scan in childhood is linked to the risk of developing future cancers.”²

“Even 15 or more years after the first exposure to ionizing radiation from CT scan, cancer risks remain elevated by 24%.”³
