Patients are exposed to radiations during diagnostic or cancer therapy using X-rays, radiopharmaceuticals or radioactive sources placed inside the patient’s body. Doses are especially high in radiotherapy and interventional procedures. Moreover, the number of medical acts using ionizing radiation has increased tremendously during recent decades.
Health professionals and patients are concerned about the harmful effects of radiation:
LANDAUER proposes microSTARii dose monitoring system which allows to monitor the dose received by the patient or to perform machine QA with the nanoDot dosimeter placed on phantom. The small size and robustness of the nanoDot allow easy installation at the desired location on the patient or phantom. The dose measured by microSTARii is used as a secondary and indepedant assessment method to confirm adequacy with TPS calculated dose and prescribed dose.
