Powered by LANDAUER’S Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) technology, single point radiation monitoring nanoDot dosimeters are a useful secondary patient dose verification quality assurance tool and are an ideal solution in multiple settings, including diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, interventional procedures and radiation oncology. These dosimeters can be placed anywhere on the body or phantom and the nondestructive readout supports reanalysis and electronic data archiving.
NanoDot dosimeters are designed for use in single point radiation assessment applications and are engineered to be read by the microSTAR®ii reader. The nanoDot offers complete reanalysis, requires no dosimeter preparation in the clinic and has a labeled sensitivity that is built into the dosimeter 2D bar code for rapid, accurate reading.
Regulatory authorities and experts agree that reducing radiation errors in medical imaging and radiation oncology is a priority, but there is little guidance on practical strategies. LANDAUER’s optically stimulated luminesence (OSL) technology, featuring nanoDot dosimeters and microSTARii readers, provides one universal, simple and flexible solution to this complex problem.
Since 1998, OSL technology has been trusted to measure occupational radiation dose for millions of health care professionals across the globe. OSL dosimeters are used for occupational dose monitoring in more than 80% of hospitals in the United States and are the subject of more than 30 published, peer-reviewed scientific publications.
