Dosimeter delivers photon and high energy beta measurements

Mirion Showcases Instadose2 Wireless Dual Detector Dosimeter at AAPM and AHRA

July 15, 2019 — Featuring dual detectors, the Instadose2 dosimeter addresses international requirements for independent deep [Hp(10)] and shallow [Hp(0.07)] measurements of both photon and beta radiation.

With the capabilities of its predecessor the Instadose+ wireless dosimeter — including on-demand dose results and the ability to wirelessly capture, transmit, measure, analyze and report radiation dose exposure any time, as often as needed — the Instadose2 dosimeter is ideally-suited for high-energy beta-sensitive environments, including: 

  • Nuclear medicine/radiotherapy; 
  • Interventional radiology; 
  • Nuclear power plants; and 
  • Research facilities utilizing beta emitting energy sources.

The Instadose smart radiation monitoring platform safeguards against radiation overexposure at facilities across the United States and around the world with:

  • Unlimited on-demand and automatic dose reads;
  • Daily dose tracking, enabling improved dose controls;
  • Automated high dose notifications;
  • Online badge reassignments and account access/management; and
  • Badge continuity — no more time-consuming collection, mailing, processing and redistribution.

According to ARRS’ American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), reduced-dose CT depicts greater than 90% of lung nodules in children and young adults with cancer, identifying the presence of nodules with moderate sensitivity and high specificity.

Axial reformatted clinical (1.083 mSv) and reduced dose (0.318 mSv) CT images from a 17-year-old girl with osteosarcoma. A 2 mm left lower lobe nodule is clearly visible in the left lower lobe on the clinical CT image (arrow in A). The same nodule is vaguely apparent on the reduced-dose CT image (arrow in B), classified as present but poorly visible.
