What we do
Integrated Sensors announces the development of its Ultra-Fast Transmissive (UFT) beam monitoring technology for ionizing particle and photon external beam radiotherapy (RT) including FLASH-RT. UFT-based detectors can monitor spot and raster pencil-beam scanning in real-time, both upstream and downstream from the nozzle or multileaf collimator, with order-of-magnitude advantages over ionization chambers for beam position, shape, dosimetry, and patient QA.
Integrated Sensors is the first company in the world to apply the high gain, high-performance properties of low cost PDP-TV (plasma display panel) technology to radiation detection, resulting in development of the Plasma Panel Sensor (PPS).
January 2021 (Snowmass-21 FLASH-RT Workshop) – Integrated Sensors presents Invited Talk on “Ultrafast and Precise External Beam Monitor for FLASH and Other Advanced Forms of Radiation Therapy”.
August 2020 – Integrated Sensors selected to present its FLASH-RT technology at the NIH-NCI SBIR MedTech Virtual Showcase.
February 2020 (Washington, DC) – The U.S. Dept. of Energy announces a $1 million grant to Integrated Sensors for development of UFT beam monitors to detect heavy-ions and exotic particle beams in real-time at high resolution (i.e., ~1 µm) with time-of-flight capability (i.e., ~50 ps) at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB).
June 2019 (Manchester, UK) – Integrated Sensors announces at the 58th Annual Conference on Particle Therapy (PTCOG58) development of its Ultra-Fast Transmissive (UFT) beam monitor technology for ionizing particle and photon external beam radiotherapy (RT) including FLASH-RT.
