HDR 1000 PLUS Well Chamber Confidence in Brachytherapy Source Calibration
Global standard for independently verifying brachytherapy source strength.
HDR 1000 PLUS Well Chamber Overview
Precise, Accurate: An Industry Standard
Ideal for LDR and HDR brachytherapy.
Validated in over 50 scientific presentations and used by primary and secondary radiation standards laboratories worldwide. Air-communicating chamber, so there is no inaccuracy due to an undetected gas leak as in a pressurized chamber.
Perform Independent Verification
AAPM TG-56, TG-40 and TRS-398 recommend independent verification of source strengths. Without independent calibration, centers in the U.S. may be forgoing reimbursement income.
Assurance is Confidence
HDR 1000 Plus has been performance validated in more than 50 scientific presentations and is used by Primary and Secondary Radiation Standards Laboratories throughout the world. Precise and accurate calibration of HDR and LDR Iridium, Iodine, Palladium, Cesium, and Strontium brachytherapy source activities. Calibrates individual and multiple sources.
