DoseWire™ Series 200

Accuracy of film QA. The efficiency of a digital detector array.

Overview

A user-friendly dosimetry solution

DoseWire™ Series 200 is a CE-marked medical device enabling real-time in-vivo dosimetry during radiation therapy. The compact optical fibre sensors can be easily positioned at up to four locations during procedures, applied on a patient’s skin or introduced in natural and/or surgical cavities. Sensors are compatible with single-use sterile covers to ensure that safety and hygiene standards are met.

How does it work?

DoseVue’s patented technology works using scintillators: materials that convert ionizing radiation into visible or near-visible light.

  1. When radiation hits the scintillator, the material fluoresces. The amount of light is proportional to the amount of radiation.
  2. The light emitted by the scintillators is converted into an electrical signal.
  3. By processing this signal, the dose rate of the radiation is quantified and presented in real-time by means of a user-friendly graphical interface.

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)
