A Turnkey Solution for Everything You Need
Veritas can incorporate all required materials—including shielding, door and optional interior finish systems—to deliver a complete solution with the peace of mind and convenience that comes from working with a single-source provider.
Eliminate Mazes with Direct-Entry Doors
With their exceptional attenuation properties, smooth operation, attractive design and fast performance speed, VeriShield® doors are a superior alternative to thick, space-consuming maze entries. VeriShield® doors simplify both room layouts and space requirements.
100% Shielding Effectiveness Guarantee
Shrinking barrier thickness with VeriShield® modules doesn’t skimp on proton attenuation. In fact, all energies are attenuated in approximately half the space as concrete—with shielding effectiveness 100% guaranteed. See how we build.
Decrease Walking Time to Increase Patient Throughput
With the elimination of the maze comes a dramatic reduction in the time to access the patient and distance traveled into and out of the room. On average, a technician enters a treatment room at least 3 times for every patient. A direct entry approach saves them from walking more than 6 miles/week (9.6km) or 300 miles/year (483km). More importantly, a direct entry approach enables you to treat more patients and maximize the use of your space.
Side-By-Side: How Steps Add Up
|MAZE ENTRY||DIRECT ENTRY|
|Entrance to patient is 70′ (21.3m)||Entrance to patient is 20′ (6.1m)|
|Taking into account time spent opening the doors, the approximate transit time per treatment (in/out x3 ft/sec (107cm/sec)) is|
|120 seconds||34 seconds|
|Direct entry savings: 86 seconds per treatment|
Tested at MIT
VeriShield® modules in proton therapy conditions have been tested at the MIT Bates laboratory using a 230 MeV proton synchrotron. The results reveal that VeriShield® provides superior attenuation compared to concrete. Results also suggest that, with VeriShield® modules, shielding thickness can be reduced through a suitable choice of material layering. Learn more.
Interlocking Modules Build Better Shielding Faster
VPAC® units are pre-assembled to combine individual VeriShield® modules into a single structural shielding element, accelerating construction time. VPAC® units use a sine-wave interlock, which minimizes straight-line radiation leakage, forming a solid homogeneous shielding structure that retains the inherent radiation attenuation of individual VeriShield® modules.
