As part of the Varian Interoperability Program, LAP GmbH Laser Applikationen is pleased to announce that its THALES 3D SCANNER motorized water phantom is compatible for use with Halcyon® and Ethos™ radiotherapy systems. Its intuitive design secures efficient acceptance, commissioning and yearly quality assurance workflows.
The THALES 3D SCANNER is an all-in-one system that comprises a carriage system, a water phantom, a high resolution integrated electrometer and the THALES software. The comprehensive and user-friendly system allows radiotherapy experts to concentrate on the essentials, i.e. on patients, relying on a water Phantom offering high quality measurements while minimizing the room occupancy.
“From setup to measurement in just a few steps. To secure the best user experience, it is important for quality manufacturers in radiotherapy to work together in partnership,” says Dr Thierry Mertens, Business Development Manager at LAP. “Although Varian's Halcyon® and Ethos™ systems come pre-commissioned, beam verification is still an important task for most customers. The scanning range and compact size of the THALES system make it a perfect fit for this job!”
“Varian is committed to ensuring our products and services consistently work with ancillary devices to enable flexibility within clinical workflows,” explained Ben Moga, Director, Strategic Alliances and Synergy Investments, Varian, a Siemens Healthineers Company.
The following LAP products are compatible with Halcyon® version 2.0 or later and Ethos™ Radiotherapy System versions 1.0 MR 1 and 1.1:
- THALES 3D SCANNER (carriage system with integrated electrometer, water phantom, THALES web-based user software)
