Medsquare highlights French dose management research

By staff writers

November 22, 2017 -- Radiation dose management firm Medsquare is directing attention to recent research involving a new peak skin dose module on its radiation dose monitor (RDM) software.

Medical physicists from four hospitals of the Assistance Publique Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP) group have compared the RDM's peak skin dose measurements with measurements calculated on Gafchromic films. Measurements were first gathered on an anthropomorphic phantom and then on patients in routine clinical conditions.

In a presentation at the Journées Francophones de Radiologie (JFR 2017) in October, Bouchra Habib Geryes, a medical physicist at the University Hospital of Necker Enfants-Malades, reported there was an average of less than 10% difference between RDM's results and measurements using Gafchromic films, according to Medsquare.
