A precise treatment
The functionality of RayPilot® is similar to a GPS system by means that a target is localized with given coordinates.
RayPilot® use electromagnetic communication between a transmitter in the ROI and a receiver placed directly on the treatment couch, on a screen the motion of the transmitter is presented 30 times a second.
Today, RayPilot® is used for tracking during conventional and hypofractionated radiotherapy (SBRT) of prostate cancer.
An additional transmitter that will fit in the RayPilot® System is under development. It is called the HypoCath® and will be designed as an Foley catheter with the transmitter inside. This approach makes tracking available without need for surgical intervention.
