The Medical Physicist must insure in particular that the dose delivered is in accordance with the dose prescribed. He should justify his activity compliance with the current regulation. In vivo dosimetry is an essential tool to identify and correct the errors on the dose delivered.
microSTARii is the ideal tool for those applications.
Based on Al2O3:C, Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL), developed by LANDAUER, it offers a simple, quick and wireless alternative to the traditional in vivo dosimetry systems based on diode or TLD technologies.
