Keywords: Radiotherapy

The Portable Dosimeter, model TN-RD-90, is an economical, compact, stand-alone system for radiation dose measurement.

Patient dosimetry measurements are available at the touch of a button and display on the integrated LCD, without the need for software or a computer. Additionally, the rechargeable battery powered dosimeter allows easy transportation from room-to-room, or hospital-to-hospital.

The Portable Dosimeter supports up to two simultaneous dose points with any of the Best Medical Canada single MOSFETs on standard or high bias setting for optimal dose reproducibility. An automatic mode is available to continuously sample dose data at a fixed time interval during a session.

After every measurement the dosimetry data is automatically stored to memory for later viewing and can be downloaded to a computer via a USB connection and the PortableDose Connect software. A simple, menu driven interface allows customization of calibration factors, dose units and operational settings directly on the Portable Dosimeter. To save you time, a library of default calibration factors is stored in the memory, but the user also has the choice of entering their customized calibration factors.

Radiotherapy clinics can utilize the Portable Dosimeter for patient dose QA, or to measure exposures to regions-atrisk. In diagnostic radiology, the system is ideal for residual exposure dose measurements, and protocol evaluation.

For one-to-two dose points, the Portable dosimeter is a fast, simple solution for patient dosimetry that can be used for a wide range of applications in radiotherapy and radiology.

Best Medical Canada - MOSFET DOSIMETRY

High sensitivity dosimeters in standard bias have 3 mV/cGy, while high sensitivity dosimeters used in high bias will yield a nominal sensitivity of 9 mV/cGy. Fits down a 6Fr catheter for dose verification during HDR brachytherapy procedures. Dose verification during radiotherapy treatments.


Best Medical Canada - Phantoms Compatible with MOSFETs

With five dose points samples on the film and four dose points on an orthogonal plan, this QA procedure is adequate in theory and in practice.. This product was developed in association with Professor X. Wu, University of Miami, and is manufactured exclusively by Best Medical Canada. One of the planes, containing five MOSFET detection points, is the dividing plane of the two sub-phantoms where a film is housed.


Best Medical Canada - Build-up Caps

Best Medical Canada offers a custom designed Build-up Cap for use with MOSFET Dosimeters, which allows for depth dose measurements over a wide range of energies. Precise dose measurement verifies that the target volume area has been treated with the appropriate dose, while sparing surrounding tissue and organs. MOSFET dosimeters have only 0.8mm inherent build-up, which allows for flexibility in measuring surface dose as well as dose at Dmax.


Best Medical Canada - mobileMOSFET

The system consists of Remote Monitoring Dose Verification Software, wall-mounted BlueToothâ„¢ Wireless Transceiver, and a small Reader Module that acts as a channel between the MOSFET and software. This new wireless system is entirely software driven allowing for complete control of one or more systems from a remote PC. With multiple systems and transceivers, one PC can read MOSFETs in multiple treatment rooms simultaneously.
