Scintillators used to compare the best small field detectors available

Magali Besnier, from CHU de Québec-Université Laval and Université Laval, talked about her work at the AAPM 2022 determining the small field output correction factors of various small field detectors using our innovative HYPERSCINT plastic scintillation detector as a reference. Using TOPAS/GEANT4 simulations tools to refine the HYPERSCINT data, detector-specific small field output correction factors for the other detectors have…

Scintillators applied to small field dosimetry of KV photon’s beam

Benjamin Insley is a PhD’s student in medical physics at the The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, he is actually studying the use of scintillator for ultra small field dosimetry in low energy (KV) photons. As he confirms the good fit of the correction factors for our…

Plastic scintillators are a powerful solution for validating a new 10 MV photon flash beam

Nolan Esplen is a PhD student at University of Victoria, he presented his research at the AAPM 2022. He worked on a new Ultra High Dose Rate 10MV x-ray beam in professor Magdalena Bazalova-Carter‘s group in Canada. Using the Medscint HYPERSCINT Research Platform combined with radiochromic films, he was able to perform the beam commissioning and dosimetry of the TRIUMF Advanced Rare Isotope Laboratory…

FLASH dose characterization using plastic scintillation detectors!

Gabriel Famulari is a medical physicist resident at the CHUM – Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal. He presented exciting commissioning data from their Mobetron system (IntraOp Medical Corporation) used at ultra-high dose rate (UHDR) at the AAPM 2022. During is researched, he used our HYPERSCINT RP-200 system and gafchromic EBT-XD films (Ashland). He demonstrated the suitability of using…

Perfect fit between HYPERSCINT / MR-LINACs

Successful presentation at the 2022 COMP Annual Scientific Meeting The fit between the HYPERSCINT and MR-LINACs is ideal as unlike other detectors, the HYPERSCINT scintillation dosimetry platform can be used regardless of its orientation in a magnetic field environment. Together with its linearity to dose and dose-rate, the detector shows great promises for development of…
