ORIGIN demonstrates feasibility of OFS for LDR radiation monitoring

Results published in IEEE Sensors clearly demonstrates the feasibility of using a novel optical fibre-based sensor employing an inorganic scintillator, as a real-time in-vivo dosimeter for use in low dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy. The study which uses a water phantom and clinically relevant conditions to precisely evaluate the sensors performance, shows excellent agreement with theoretical expectations. This work marks a significant milestone in the development of an optical fibre-based dosimetry system for use in LDR brachytherapy.
