Radiation therapy is an essential component of cancer care and over 14 million people a year (50 – 60% of total cancer patients) receive radiation therapy. As treatment plans become ever more complex, clinical teams designing and delivering radiation treatment need tools capable of ensuring that each patient receives their prescribed treatment…every time.
Although patients are precisely aligned and instruments are carefully calibrated, ultimately, no one can directly see the delivery of radiation to the patient. DoseOptics has the ability to change the paradigm in how radiation therapy is visualized and verified. For the first time, it is possible to directly visualize a radiation beam incident upon a patient’s tissue in real time.
The company was founded to develop tools that will empower radiation oncology teams to provide the best treatment possible. By visualizing radiation therapy we will reduce misadministration events, improve treatment outcomes and save lives.
