A precise treatment
The functionality of RayPilot® is similar to a GPS system by means that a target is localized with given coordinates. The system communicates with an implanted transmitter that is located in the ROI to be treated. The transmitter sends signals to a sensor plate 30 times per second and the position is presented in the software. The advanced technology and calculation algorithms give sub millimeter accuracy of target locations.
Initially, the system is used in treatment of prostate cancer where a precise and safe localization will increase the treatment quality. It can also speed up and improve the patient set-up time for a more effective use of the radiotherapy equipment.
An automatic gating solution is available for use with Varian’s Clinac® iX linear accelerators and Trilogy® systems.
