Monitor Beam and Position in Real Time with Cherenkov Imaging
What is Cherenkov Imaging?
During radiation therapy, Cherenkov light is emitted from the patient’s skin where the radiation beam enters or exits the body.
Cherenkov Imaging uses highly sensitive cameras, synchronized with both the linac and SGRT, to visualize this light from the patient’s skin.
Delivery Incidents Caught by Cherenkov Imaging
Published data suggests that approximately 10% of patients have errors in their treatment that can be detected¹ by Cherenkov Imaging. DoseRT brings together Cherenkov Imaging with AlignRT and Horizon cameras², to monitor both beam and patient positioning in real-time.
Cherenkov Imaging: Seeing RT in a New Light
Brian Pogue, PhD – Professor and Chair of the Department of Physics at the University of Wisconsin – Madison and Professor of Engineering & Surgery at Dartmouth discusses the possibilities Cherenkov imaging offers to radiation therapy.
