DoseView 3D
Better Hardware, Better Data

3D water phantom for quick, intuitive commissioning and QA. Set-up is easy with complimentary, customized auto-queues and 24 x 7 support.

An Intuitive Path to
Commissioning QA

The DoseView 3D is a 3-axis water scanning phantom that fuses robust hardware with easy-to-use software for superior beam commissioning and quality assurance measurements.

Built for Consistency

  1. Robust Construction 
    Manufactured with a rigid, one-piece cast aluminum frame and stainless steel leadscrews.

  2. Precise, Three-Point Leveling
    Three leveling screws are mounted above the scanning volume, making leveling easy even when the phantom is filled.

  3. Fewer Cables, Faster Setup, Better Data
    Reduced detector cable length lessens settling time and opportunity for cable leakage. 

  4. Durable, Accurate Stepper Motors
    5 stepper motors maintain superior precision over the phantom’s lifetime.

  5. Convenient, Wireless Pendant
    An intuitive wireless pendant allows for easy vault operation without restricting movement. 

  6. Automatic Phantom Drain

  7. Keep cables organized during testing
    Cable carriers keep the motor connections compact and unobtrusive.

  8. Reference Detector Holder

  9. Sample Detector Holder
    Position holders horizontally or vertically while maintaining a consistent origin location using the Detector Alignment System.

Customized Auto-Queues and 24 x 7 Support

Customized auto-queue scan sets are implemented at no cost for each customer. This time-saving feature will save 8+ hours of work when setting up scans. Customers also have the flexibility of choosing wizard-based or manual setup options to define their own scans. Custom scans created in Auto-Acquisition mode can be saved and recalled for later testing. These sets can be implemented, edited and organized on a TPS or custom basis to streamline commissioning and QA procedures.

Standard Imaging also provides 24 x 7 phone support for DV3D in USA.

How It Works

1

Simple Setup

Setup is simple, fast and repeatable with the DoseView 3D. A wireless pendant and fiducials on the tank allow for quick coarse positioning, while the Precision Positioning Platform helps perform the final minute adjustments. Auto-fill capacity allows users to install detectors while the tank is filling. The Detector Alignment System ensures that the center of the detector is consistently placed at the exact position relative to the water’s surface.

Intelligent Scanning

Begin data acquisition by using either the wizard-based or manual setup options to define custom scans, which can be saved and recalled for later testing. These sets can be implemented, edited and organized on a TPS or custom basis. The DoseView 3D acquires both depth dose and profile data in a single operation. All scan data is saved in real-time in case a beam needs to be shutoff.

Comprehensive Analysis

The Scan Processing Module in the DoseView 3D software features a suite of tools for data manipulation. All raw scan data is stored in the same file format as processed data for quick reference and comparison. Scan data is stored in machine -> energy -> SSD hierarchy for easy browsing and editing of existing files.

"The DoseView 3D is an outstanding scanning tank.   Setup is simple and easy.  Hopefully you are only using your scanning tank once a year.  DV3D has made the set up so simple that after a 12 months of not using the tank it still feels familiar.  The software guides you through step by step on initializing the tank and preparing it for scanning in case you have forgot all the steps since last use.  With its three point leveling arm, fine tune position, and auto field centering setup can be achieved in less than 20 minutes."

Ben Robison Medical Physicist Provision Radiation Therapy

"Having used other water Phantoms in the past, the DoseView 3D is by far the easiest and most robust scanner I've ever worked with. Intuitive setup, taking less than 20 minutes, the resulting scan data was clean, requiring minimal post processing. "

Howard Salmon The Cancer Center at Lake City – Lake City, FL

“I really did like the distinct features of the DV3D. Take the water reservoir for example, compared to other water tanks where you have to bring the reservoir…. this now makes set up quick and easy."

Hairong Shi, Ph.D., DABR Chief Medical Physicist & Radiation Safety Officer Tulsa Cancer Institute

"We are using this water phantom every month for measurement, thanks to it being very easy to setup and use."

Ganeshkumar Patel Chief Medical Physicist & RSO American GBH Hospital

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the software include the ability to generate PDD and TMR Tables?

Yes.  The Table Generation Module allows you to create and edit the following table types: PDD, TAR, TPR/TMR.

Can DV3D acquire a 40x40 scan at 30 cm depth?

Yes, the DV3D can acquire 40x40 scans at 30 cm depth by performing half scans.  However, this is done while remaining at 100 SSD, instead of requiring a vertical shift to correctly account for head scatter.  Performing scans at other SSDs may not be indicative of the true scatter conditions found at 100 SSD.

What is the average setup time?

The DoseView 3D arrives completely assembled ready to scan. Your personalized prebuilt scanning ques are already loaded on the computer. Simply level the tank and start scanning in less than 30 minutes. No need to run self-leveling software that requires another trip into the treatment room. This same step must be completed for any subsequent scans.

The DoseView 3D set up routine is simple to complete with aid from the detector alignment system which ensures that the center of the detector is consistently placed at the exact position relative to the water’s surface. One cable runs to the computer to finalize the setup.

What type of database does DV3D use, and what is its capacity?

DV3D data is stored in a flat file and folder based structure and storage is reliant upon the disc space of the computer.  Because of this, it is highly unlikely to run out of capacity.  The commissioning data of 2 photon energies with four wedges and 5 electron energies might result in 750 files, requiring about 3 MB of space.  An 80 GB hard drive could store the data of over 25,000 commissionings!

How is the DV3D different from other systems regarding processing?

Both Raw and Processed data is saved separately, allowing easy viewing between scan data and preventing an accidental overwrite.

Can the DV3D export my data directly to my treatment planning system?

Yes, you can export directly to the following treatment planning systems: Varian Eclipse,  Philips Pinnacle, Nucletron Oncentra, Elekta Monaco, XiO, Oncentra, Phillips Pinnacle, and Prowess Panther.
