Solid Water® HE

Accurate Point Dose and PDD Dosimetry

Solid Water High Equivalency (HE) is the next generation of water mimicking material, pioneered, patented, and standardized by Gammex. Solid Water HE uses patent-pending technology to provide improved uniformity and durability to achieve higher homogeneity and 0.5% water equivalence for both therapy and imaging energy ranges.



Features & Benefits

  • Uniformity
    • Improved uniformity and reduced variation across the slab utilizing nanospheres
    • Each slab is scanned with a CT and verified for uniformity before shipment
    • No streaks or stripes, which offers more consistent results for imaging and therapeutic QA tests
  • Stronger Durability
    • Allows the manufacturing of a highly accurate 0.1 cm slab (not available in original Solid Water)
    • Longer lifespan and scratch resistant
  • Enhanced Water Equivalency
    • Improves the linear response of the slab across a spectrum of energie
