The high precision achievable in the dose deposition of Particle Therapy (PT) treatments requires an online technology, currently missing in the clinical routine, allowing precise monitoring of treatment volumes. The novel device presented in this contribution (Dose Profiler, DP), suitable for applications to carbon ions treatments, is a scintillating fibre tracker that exploits the detection of the secondary charged particles produced by the beam patient interactions with the patient to reconstruct the dose release profile. The first results obtained on DP performance using the CNAO ${}^{12}$C ion beams impinging on an anthropomorphic phantom target are reported.
