Lexitek designs and manufactures high-performance imaging detectors.
We are currently developing scintillator-based detectors for proton and particle-beam radiotherapy with a focus on quality assurance (QA). These detectors can accurately measure particle therapy treatment plans prior to their delivery.
We are also experienced with counting detectors for photons and ionizing radiation, and scintillator-based X-ray detectors for non-destructive testing.
Lexitek is developing patented and patent-pending detectors for hadron (proton and ion) radiotherapy. The rapid growth of hadron therapy requires better radiation detectors to enable new treatment modalities and provide Quality Assurance (QA) for treatment plans.
These detectors use a scintillator and a scientific imaging camera. One of a choice of scintillators specialized for different applications converts a small fraction of the beam energy into light. An imaging system produces a high SNR image that can be correlated to intended radiation dose. This detector has advantages over alternative detectors:
The detectors, in different configurations, have the following applications:
