Mirion Showcases Instadose2 Wireless Dual Detector Dosimeter at AAPM and AHRA

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.

A 3-D printed tungsten pre-clinical X-ray system collimator. The tungsten alloy powder is printed into the form desired and is laser fused so it can be machined and finished. Previously, making collimators from Tungsten was labor intensive because it required working with sheets of the metal to create the collimator matrix.
