OARtrac

Organization: RadiaDyne
Co-Developer(s): Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility
Year: 2018

Although significant progress has been made in extending life for cancer patients through radiotherapy treatments, many patients still experience significant life changing complications related to them. OARtrac— a first-of-its-kind radiation dose monitoring platform— provides a safety mechanism for radiation oncologists to detect errors and potentially avoid complications by physically measuring the radiation dose during cancer treatment and verifying it is actually the prescribed dose. The OARtrac System itself does not stop the radiation treatment to the patient, or change the radiation delivery, but provides dose data which a trained radiation oncologist can decipher and use to adjust a patient’s treatment plan accordingly.
