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

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

  • A unique multilayer ionization chamber conceived to measure the depth dose distributions of particle beams at different energies and modulations.
  • It can be irradiated from both sides and allows verifiying both prostine and spread-out Bragg Peaks with a single beam run (simoultaneous read-out of all the ionization chambers)
  • Modular design:to be adapted to different applications and beam energies and to be upgraded and extended throughout the years
  • Class I medical device
  • Possibility to add PIXEL or STRIP module to get information on beam shape and XY profile.
  • Water-equivalent resolution: 2.3 or 1.2 mm
  • QA software included (based on National Instruments)

 

QUBE (standard version):

  • 128 channels
  • interpolated resolution: ~0,5 mm
  • total WEPL: ~ 300 mm
  • Sensitive area: 12.7 x 12.7 cm2
  • Conceived to be placed at the isocentre and measure the beam parameters (position, shape, intensity) during routine dosimetry, quality assurance procedures and commissioning tests.
  • Reliable, light and easy to set up. It is equipped with a docking station which ensures its correct positioning during data acquisition
  • Ideal for scanned beams
  • Customizable sensitive area and resolution
  • Simultaneous read out of all the channels
  • QA software based on National Instruments

 

miniQ-STRIP (standard version):

  • 2 anodes segmented in 127 strips (X, Y) + 2 integral chambers
  • Strip width: 1 mm
  • Resolution: ~0.1 mm
  • Total sensitive area: 12.7 x 12.7 cm2

miniQ-PIXEL (standard version)

  • 1 anode segmented in 1024 pixels (32×32) + 2 integral chambers
  • Pixel area down to 5 x 5 mm2
  • Total sensitive area: 12.7 x 12.7 cm2
  • 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.
