Cardiff University PET Centre chooses the new Trudose for personal dosimetry

 

The new Tudose from Thermo Fisher Scientific replaces the old EPD-mk2 dosemeter with the advantage of a larger, clearer display, simple user interface combined with added functionality for wireless communication and pulsed radiation fields

When used in combination with the Radsight software the system becomes a very powerful yet simple to use issue / receipt / dose record / reporting system and has both H*10 and H*0.07 reporting capabilities.

The Radsight software also interfaces with the EPD-mk2 and so both new and old dosemeter populations  can be used simultaneously.

At the Cardiff University PET centre the modern Radsight software browser capabilities have allowed for 3 connected issue / return stations to be set up simplifying the provision of dose monitoring at these 3 sites with combined database characteristics.Cardif University trudose.jpg

Prof Chris Marshall PhD, FIPEM, CSci who is director of the Wales Research and Diagnostic PET Imaging Centre says ‘ we chose this system as the dosemeter is technically very advanced and in combination with the Radsight software it provides very simple workflow for staff necessitating minimal training for system deployment......thus far we have been very pleased with this new state of the art system’

Recent Medical TLD Courses held  Novotel, Reading and at Phoenix Dosimetry Ltd.

We have recently hosted two TLD training courses in partnership with Rotunda Scientific, the first was aimed at the personnel monitoring TLD user, and the second specifically for the medical use of TLD.

The courses were run by Joe Rotunda and covered all aspects of theory, preparation, calibration and implementation of TLD in both personnel and medical applications.

Phoenix Dosimetry now offer the range of QA tools from Eckel and Ziegler, the range includes the popular Isocentric Beam Checker IBC II which consists of a large opaque acrylic screen backed by a secondary plate, supported by two lateral uprights. The screen is inscribed with lines precisely defining corners, edges, and centre of the screen's 2cm x 2cm, 5cm x 5cm, 10cm x 10cm, 15cm x 15cm, and 20cm x 20cm fields.

Intersecting centre lines are inscribed with short lines spaced 1 cm apart. The screen can rotate about its axis in increments of 45 degree. Tungsten markers of 2 mm diameter are embedded in the centre and corners of the fields. A 10" x 12" ready-pack film can be sandwiched between the two plates. When exposed, the tungsten markers project as sharp image on the film.
