Exciting news for medical physicists seeking cutting-edge dosimetry solutions in the BENELUX region: RadiCare b.v. is now the proud distributor of our groundbreaking radiotherapy dosimetry solutions!

MEDSCINT and RADICARE sign distribution agreement for plastic scintillation dosimetry in BENELUX

Quebec (CANADA), April 23rd, 2024 – The leading provider of quality assurance (QA) scintillation dosimetry solutions for radiation therapy MEDSCINT has entered into a distribution agreement with Radicare, a major and trusted independent provider of medical equipment and software to the radiotherapy community. Under the distribution agreement, Radicare will market and sell MEDSCINT HYPERSCINT™ solutions for research use to institutions in The Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg regions (BENELUX).

The MEDSCINT patented HYPERSCINT™ real-time dose measurement detector sets the standard for accuracy in demanding radiotherapy applications such as dosimetry of small-fields, real-time adaptive QA (ex. MR-Linac) and ultra-high dose rate irradiation protocols (UHDR or FLASH-RT).

Unique features include:

  • Fast real-time dose measurements at multiple locations, simultaneously.
  • Water-equivalent detector, improving measurement accuracy without perturbation nor correction factors.
  • Miniature sensitive volume (down to 0.1 mm³), providing sharp spatial resolution.
  • Unique hyperspectral Cherenkov/stem removal technique, enabling robust angular independence on 4π.
  • Linear response over a wide range of dose rates (from out-of-field to ultra-high dose rates).
  • Metal-free detector design, eliminating artifacts when used in high-strength magnetic fields.

“We help medical physicists understand, develop and deploy modern radiation therapy techniques by providing a new generation of versatile optical dosimetry solutions. Our sales are on the growth path, and this new partnership will allow us to expand our geographic reach and support our customers in Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg region,” says Jonathan Turcotte, Co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer at Medscint.

“We offer a wide range of top-notch equipment specifically designed to make Radiotherapy treatments more precise and effective, and plastic scintillation detectors from MEDSCINT proved to deliver outstanding performances. We are thrilled to give access to our customer base to such innovative and promising technology,”adds Patrick Hylkema, Founder and CEO at Radicare.
