Technologies for healthcare platforms
The DOSEO platform was created to enhance radiotherapy equipment and train radiotherapy professionals with the ultimate goal of making radiotherapy treatments safer. The platform was founded in cooperation with France’s national testing and metrology lab (LNE) and the French National Cancer Center (INCA) with funding from the French government, the European Union, and local governments.
The 2,400 sq. m facility is home to a comprehensive range of equipment and employs 35 radiation-dose metrology, simulation, calculation, and optimization specialists. The platform is entirely dedicated to training and research, giving clinical practitioners and manufacturers an alternative to conducting their research at a clinical center; the platform also rounds out the facilities available at traditional clinical centers.
DOSEO’s training programs, provided in conjunction with France’s nuclear science and technology center (INSTN), target medical physicists, radiology technicians, engineers, radiotherapists, general practitioners, and any other professional that prescribes or works with radiotherapy techniques. The hands-on research at the platform is conducted on commercially-available equipment; earlier stage research leverages the platform’s lab facilities. Some of the topics addressed are dose simulation coupled with virtual reality, real-time in vivo dose control, and dose optimization. Partners can also work with the platform to test equipment, improve upon protocols before they are commercialized, and perform remote calculations.
