Tel Aviv, Israel – (BUSINESS WIRE) – August 29, 2023 – Radiaction Medical, LTD (“Radiaction”), a medical device company whose mission is to provide radiation protection to the entire medical staff during interventional procedures, today made two announcements. First, it has raised $12.6 million in Series C2 funding led by U.S. private equity fund InnovaHealth …
The increasing use of minimally invasive orthopedic procedures has led to a greater reliance on fluoroscopy, resulting in elevated radiation exposure for surgeons.
Improving radiation protection will enhance the quality of life for the cath lab. Heavy protective lead aprons, moveable shields, and poor ergonomics remain barriers to a safer environment. Innovations in shielding systems will permit the CCL team to work in a personal “lead-free” environment.
Lead-free, lead-composite garments, and 0.25-mm and 0.35-mm lead aprons are up to 30% lighter. Still, bench testing for radiation transmission has yielded variable results compared with the standard 0.5-mm lead garment, thus questioning the safety of these devices regarding radiation protection.
