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.

Varian received FDA clearance for its Ethos therapy in February 2020. It is an adaptive intelligence solution that uses onboard AI in the treatment system to take the cone beam CT imaging on the system, compare it to the treatment plan and deliver an entire adaptive treatment plan in a typical 15-minute treatment time slot, from patient setup through treatment delivery.
