Non-invasive in-situ radiation dosimetry

A system for measuring radiation dose comprises an excitation device adapted for directing an energy wave at a volume of a substance comprising gas-filled microparticles, a detector for detecting a response signal emitted and/or modified from the volume of the substance comprising gas-filled microparticles; and a control unit. The control unit is adapted for calculating a dose of ionizing radiation previously received by the volume of the substance based on the response signal. A method includes measuring a received dose of ionizing radiation and using a contrast agent for non-invasive in-situ dosimetry.
