Fleximetry in action
Beyond routine occupational dosimetry for healthcare organizations,
LANDAUER has employed our vast expertise to address a wide range of
unique situations, developing custom solutions to help them achieve
Premier among these is the work we've done
configuring our trusted proprietary optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) technology to address the
growing concern over patient radiation dose. LANDAUER now offers a
comprehensive patient monitoring solution that can quickly and
accurately measure actual delivered dose in vivo for radiation
oncology, interventional radiology and diagnostic imaging. Read more
about LANDAUER patient monitoring solutions here.
examples of LANDAUER Fleximetry for healthcare include:
- Working closely with the Radiological Physics Center (RPC) in
partnership with the National Cancer Institute, on a long-term clinical
evaluation of LANDAUER's OSL technology, studying OSL's efficacy in
remote audits of photon and electron beam output, and energy checks for
electron beams. This initiative resulted in the RPC switching from TLDs
to OSL dosimeters for their remote audit protocols.
- Development of a custom dosimetry program to measure exposure for
spouses of men who had undergone prostate seeding, configuring badges
for ease of wear and enabling tracking by patient for accurate record
- Helping design a special dosimetry program to measure the CT scan
dose for every pediatric trauma patient treated by one institution, with
the objective of illustrating whether these scans generated unsafe
exposure for this vulnerable patient population.
