How is the TomoDose calibrated?
What type of cable is used with the TomoDose?
Q: How is the TomoDose calibrated?
A: Array calibration is performed with a built-in software application that guides the user through Sun Nuclear’s wide field calibration (US Patent # 6125335.) Six separate exposures calibrate the entire detector array using detector substitution. Calibration takes about 15 minutes per energy, and TomoDose can be calibrated on a standard 6MV linac beam or on Tomotherapy’s Hi-Art system.
Q: What type of cable is used with the TomoDose?
A: The TomoDose uses the same cable and power supply as other Sun Nuclear instruments.
