Ion Beam Applications S.A. (IBA, Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium), the global leader in particle accelerator technology and a world-leading provider of dosimetry and quality assurance (QA) solutions, has entered into an agreement to acquire all the assets of Radcal Corporation (Monrovia, CA, USA), a leader in diagnostic X-ray measurement. With the acquisition of Radcal, IBA will further strengthen its Medical Imaging Quality Assurance offering as well as its presence in the US market.

Radcal, a pioneer in the X-ray imaging market, introduced the first instrument to provide comprehensive measures of X-ray dose with the capability to interchange sensors without any loss in accuracy, almost 50 years ago. The integration of Radcal into IBA’s business will aid its continued growth in the dosimetry and quality assurance field, further strengthening its foothold in the key US market and expanding its product offering beyond OEM and into the clinical setting.
