Exradin® D1H & D1V Diode Detectors

Maximize signal and spatial resolution and minimize angular dependence for consistent, accurate small-field stereotactic measurements.

The Exradin® Advantage

  • Higher signal, flatter profiles and sharper resolution with a smaller active measurement.
  • Precise measurement of minute fields with high visibility of the penumbra.

Features & Benefits

Minimize Angular Dependence

Exradin diodes have less than 0.5% angular dependence when tilted up to 20°, providing more confidence when measuring the penumbra or edge of the beam.

Specialized for Small Fields

  • The D1V's diode face is perpendicular to the beam when upright, making it ideal for photon scanning applications and use in water phantoms and the Lucy 3D QA Phantom.
     
  • The D1H's diode face is perpendicular to the beam when flat, for use inside traditional solid phantoms.
     
  • Both diodes provide superior measurement of field sizes up to 20 x 20 cm2 with excellent spatial resolution and minimal noise.
