Default Hyperdense Shielding?

Packed sand does a decent job of stopping radiation. Bricks and concrete are better. Steel is better still, and lead is typically considered the best.

But lead isn't really the most dense. For instance, depleted uranium is significantly more dense (although much more pricey) and could make for thin but powerful shielding.

This got me thinking--what about TL11 "hyperdense" materials? Perhaps cheaply producing osmium or some other ultra-dense material could produce even thinner shielding for the same mass!

What do you think?
