13th July 2021
Oncology Systems Limited (OSL) would like to announce they have signed an exclusive agreement with DoseVue NV, to distribute an in-vivo dosimetry product DoseWire ™ Series 200, to radiotherapy centres within the UK and Ireland.
DoseVue’s unique technology uses fibre optic filaments coated in a light-emitting material that fluoresces when exposed to radiation. This allows for the real-time, accurate measurement of the actual dose delivered during radiation oncology procedures. The compact sensors of the DoseWire™ Series 200 can be easily positioned at up to four locations during procedures, applied on patient’s skin or introduced in natural and/or surgical cavities. CE marked as a medical device, the DoseWire™ Series 200 can be used for a range of applications, including brachytherapy and intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT).
“OSL are proud to be offering this unique and innovative technology for in-Vivo Dosimetry. DoseWire is suitable for multiple applications with fibre optic precision and accuracy. A great addition to our portfolio”, adds Stuart Southgate, Commercial Manager, OSL.
The DoseWire Series 200 has been validated in the following clinical contexts:
- HDR Brachytherapy (using lr-192)
- Electron-based IORT
- MRI Linac (6 MeV, 0.4 T maximum)
- Stereotactic Radiosurgery
- Contact therapy (Orthovoltage therapy)
- Proton therapy (up to 62 MeV)
