Medscint, a leading provider of quality assurance (QA) dosimetry solutions for cancer radiation therapy, is proud to commemorate its 5th anniversary. Over the past five years, Medscint has established itself as a leading player in the field of dosimetry, providing innovative solutions based on a disruptive optical dosimetry technology.

From the lab to the market

It all started when our President and CEO François Therriault-Proulx was working on the foundations of a groundbreaking scintillation dosimetry technology, covering doctoral and postdoctoral research positions with Luc Beaulieu at Laval University, Quebec and Sam Beddar at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston. Then Medscint was launched in Quebec – Canada in 2018, with a constantly evolving portfolio of solutions, and a team of experts in medical physics, optics/photonics and business development.
