What X-ray Brings to You: X-ray vs Other Modalities & Comparison Case Study

Frederic Dessy, Product Manager, IBA Industrial

Frédéric Stichelbaut, R&D Nuclear Interactions Domain Expert -IBA Fellow, IBA Industrial

Recorded on March 25, 2021

In Chapter 4 “What X-ray Brings to You: X-ray vs Other Modalities & Comparison Case Study”, Frederic Dessy will recall the principles of X-rays, focusing on the physics of X-rays (production, difference between X-rays and other irradiation facilities using the electron beam and cobalt). Then, the way in which X-rays can be used for sterilization will be discussed by bringing some general information on the dose uniformity ratio.

Frédéric Stichelbaut will then develop these principles in more detail and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of X-ray irradiation, examining product compatibility, how the product could be packaged and how the irradiation process works. Another aspect that will be covered is the optimization of the treatment process by looking at different irradiation set-ups and what they could provide in terms of yearly volume, irradiation time and footprint.

This webinar is complimentary.
