DoseVue History

DoseVue was founded in 2013 as the first spin-off of the Belgian Nuclear Research Center (SCK•CEN), an internationally renowned player in the field of radiation protection and dosimetry research. Together with academic and industry partners (including SIT and Eckert Ziegler), we are continually expanding our product portfolio of in-vivo dosimetry solutions. With the dedicated support of our investors Innovation Fund and LRM, DoseVue is led by an experienced management team and board of directors.
