Thierry Gevaert, professor at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and deputy head of the radiotherapy department at UZ Brussel (UZB) in Belgium says:

“LAP has carefully considered the design to make the device as easy to use as possible. We use a water phantom a few times a year, and with this system there is no need to relearn the measurement process each time. Many of the steps are automated, so we don’t need to waste time finding the right position of the chamber before starting the measurements.”
