Late September LKAB Minerals Inc. was present at the ASTRO Annual Meeting Radiation Shielding.
By many visitors and exhibitors, this meeting with exhibition is marked as the one and only show for the oncology industry therefore a must for LKAB Minerals to be there.
“This was our first participation to the ASTRO show. We met a lot of important players in the American healthcare market who focus on radiation shielding. As an aggregate supplier we did stand out as we supply a niche product to a niche application, which we believe was a good thing”, Peter Johansson, Magnetite Sales Manager for LKAB Minerals Inc. told us.
In general we see that the North American market is dominated by LINAC machines used for radiation therapies. Using MagnaDense concrete for radiation shielding in the walls and ceilings of the rooms where these apparatus are placed, has been a proven solution for many hospitals, healthcare centers and research facilities world-wide.
Contact us for more information on the benefits high density concrete could have for your radiation shielding in a healthcare project. You can also read more on this topic at our Radiation Shielding for Healthcare page or view the video we created on this subject.
