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).
