PATIENT POSITIONING

 

PATIENT ALIGNMENT - PRECISE, REPRODUCABLE, FAST

Modern radiation therapy places high demands on patient alignment:

  • precise positioning, to prevent healthy tissue from being unnecessarily exposed to radiation
  • reproducable positioning, to reach maximum impact by focussed therapy
  • fast positioning, to not waste time during alignment.

LAP offers several solutions for patient-setup:

APOLLO (red, green or blue) - the established high standard with 6 axes remote controlled adjustment

ASTOR (green or red) - the high precision system with manual adjustment for the price conscious
