Significant Clinical Advantages
Unlike other detector types, the water equivalent W2 scintillator does not perturb small field dose distributions when it is placed in the beam, so you can measure small fields with greater accuracy.
Exradin® W2 Scintillator
Scintillation signal can be sent from the MAX SD to a water tank scanning electrometer in real time, so the W2 can be used for scanning your small field profiles and depth doses.
I found the W2 scintillator to be an extremely useful tool for commissioning and routine QA of our MRIdian® system. I would recommend this detector to anyone considering it for MR-linac.
