"A new imaging system from Hanover-based DoseOptics enables direct imaging of radiation delivery on a routine basis," reports NHBR.

"The technology works with radiation therapy linacs (linear particle accelerators), capturing both photon and electron beam delivery and providing real-time video rate visualization of the beam shape at the point of incidence and exit. The radiotherapy team can now record and monitor the position and movements while imaging at the site of delivery.

"DoseOptics President, Brian Pogue is encouraged about the potential. 'We are extremely excited to be able to offer a Cherenkov imaging system to the field of Radiation Oncology where we believe it can change the paradigm of radiation delivery verification, and provide intuitive visualization of the treatment for everyone in the department,' said Dr. Pogue, professor of engineering at Thayer School at Dartmouth and professor of surgery at the Geisel School of Medicine.
