3D Beam Spot Viewing
XRV-2020A Camera Phantom
The XRV-2020A X-ray beam profiler combines high-energy radiation detection with precision two dimensional metrology to form a completely electronic alternative to film-based measurements. The XRV-2020A measures the XY location and profile of radiation beams with unmatched speed and accuracy. Beams up to 14x14 cm in size may be directed at the scintillator surface from vertical and horizontal orientations. Automation scripts can be used to record changes in the beam shape, intensity, and location over time.
XRV systems calibrate stereotactic radiosurgery systems or industrial radiation sources that must deliver precisely dosed amounts of radiation to targeted regions in 3D space. The correct operation of mechanical leaf collimators used in these systems can be quickly verified while the beam is active. Beam dimension measurements are accurate to +-0.15 mm and centroid positions to +-0.2 mm. Beam viewing software enables real-time any-angle viewing of the captured profile data with live penumbra and symmetry measurements.
All operations are controlled by a laptop or desktop PC supplied with the camera phantom. The XRV comes with a 30 meter (100 feet) USB cable system so that the system PC and operator can be located safely away from the radiation source. The X-ray camera phantom weighs approximately 8 kilograms (17 pounds).
The 145x145 mm scintillator

that is reflected off the 45 degree mirror to the camera.
