MEDICAL DEVICES

Devices for therapeutic beam control and diagnostics in radiotherapy

MEDICAL DEVICES

Medical devices is the industry where we start our activity, designing and manufacturing ionization chambers for advanced radiotherapy to monitor charged particle therapeutic beams, both during treatments and for daily quality assurance procedures and particle accelerator calibration.

ONLINE MONITORING OF PARTICLE BEAMS FOR CLINICAL
AND EXPERIMENTAL ROOMS

BEAM MONITOR

set-beam-monitor
  • Control and measurement of therapeutic particle beams (position, size and intensity)
  • Custom turn-key solutions for physics and radiobiology experiments
  • Technology based on ionization chambers
  • Customizable characteristics: size, pad structure (integral, strip, pixel), acquisition rate
  • Embedded software solutions

SCANNING MAGNETS

  • Magnets to move the therapeutic beam right to the tumour target

CONTROL SYSTEM

  • Data communication with the accelerator and the clinical facility
  • Embedded elements to ensure the safety of patients

DEVICES FOR BEAM CALIBRATION
AND QUALITY ASSURANCE PROCEDURES

  • The ultimate all-in-one QA device to get full beam characterization in a single-shot.
  • Modular configuration to allow depth dose curves measurements and to integrate X and Y strip chambers module for position and profile measurements.
  • Housing for PMMA absorbers to increase the spatial resolution in pristine Bragg peak and SOBP verifications.
  • Suitable for all particle beams as protons and carbon ions

 

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

  • From 32 to 160 channels – 8 channels each module – min 4 modules
  • Possibility to add STRIP chambers module
  • Range covered up to 375 mm – 20 modules
  • Total sensitive area: 127 mm x 127 mm
  • Water equivalent pitch: 2,34 mm
  • Interpolated resolution: 0,5 mm in water
  • Unique beam profile measurement device in its new, all-in-one, light and catchy design.
  • Conceived to be placed at the isocentre and measure the beam parameters: position, shape, and intensity. Easy and fast to set up.
  • To be used during routine QA procedures and commissioning tests.
  • Ideal for pencil beams of protons and carbon ions, thanks to its high resolution spot measurements.

 

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Ionization chambers: 127 X strips and 127 Y strips + 2 integrals
  • Total sensitive area: 127 mm x 127 mm
  • Pitch: 1 mm
  • Interpolated resolution: 0,1 mm
  • Multi-layer Faraday cup for quality assurance measurements in ocular proton treatments.
  • Very precise measurement of pristine and spread-out Bragg peaks.
  • Verification of range and modulation in eye tumor therapy.
  • System of fine and coarse preabsorbers to find the measurement range and software for correct device positioning.
  • Dedicated software based on National Instruments

 

Q-EYE (standard version):

  • Water-equivalent resolution: 100 um
  • Energy range: 30 MeV – 70 MeV
  • Energy resolution: ~0.1 MeV
  • Total sensitive area: 10 cm diameter

BEAM DIAGNOSTICS INSTRUMENTS FOR PARTICLE ACCELERATORS AND
HIGH AND LOW ENERGY TRANSFER LINES

INTENSITY MONITOR

We design and develop devices for online measurements of secondary emissions, Faraday cups and off-line combinations with ionization chambers for evaluation of beam current and energy.

POSITION AND PROFILE MONITOR

We provide slits, wire scanners, profile grids, scintillating fibers as as watch-dog before scanning magnets or intensity vs position monitors.
