AVID Verification Phantom for IMRT

The first integrated hardware and software dosimetry system

The AVID™ (Advanced Verification of Integrated Dose) enables verification of radiation treatment plans. The system is made of tissue-equivalent materials and allows a comprehensive range of IMRT measurements (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy).

The Challenge

  • Finding and working with tissue equivalent materials
  • Resolving conflicting requirements for the mechanical design

How StarFish Helped

  • Development from initial concepts to manufacturing transfer
  • Modular film cartridge for easy loading and measurements
  • Flexible film configurations for sampling and high-resolution volumetric measurements with up to 21 film planes
  • Automated fiducial marking system that uniquely localizes each film within the 3D volume using ambient light
  • Ionization chamber insert for precise point-dose measurements

The Result

  • Design completed by StarFish Medical for MDX Medical
  • One patent application
