APOLLO - HIGH PRECISION TOOLS FOR PATIENT POSITIONING

Laser systems for patient alignment in RT

In radiotherapy precise, reproducible and fast positioning of patients are required for successful treatments and high patient throughput.

After the initial patient marking process at CT or MRI the patient will be repositioned on the LINAC using cross hair and sagittal line lasers. The fixed lasers are aligned to the isocenter of the LINAC and enable isocentric positioning of the patient.

Integrated in a superior aluminium housing our APOLLO room laser combines advanced optics, high precision mechanics and state of the art electronics to ensure the highest level of stability and reliability.

Offering various configurations the APOLLO lasers are perfectly suited to meet all room requirements.

EASE OF ADJUSTMENT

APOLLO lasers are initially adjusted to the isocenter of the LINAC during installation. For adjustments over time the easy to use remote control offers 6 degrees of freedom. The remote control performs all laser positioning for the ultrafine lines including focus.

PRECISE

LAP ULTRALINE is the result of advanced mechanical components and unique optoelectronics used to generate and align laser lines for medical applications. The ultrafine and very long lines meet the high quality requirements for linearity and brightness distribution.

 

 

DISTORTION - FREE

LAP laser systems are fitted with unbreakable, specially flattened glass windows. This minimizes scattering and guarantees ultrafine lines at all transition angles.

 

 

Tilt bracket

LAP APOLLO lasers are equipped with adjustable tilting brackets allowing for rotation up to 45°. The APOLLO’s compact design makes it an ideal solution for tight mounting locations.

MOUNTING VERSIONS

For patient alignment each LINAC room is equipped with at least three room lasers. One laser projects a sagittal line and two cross hair lasers project the transverse and horizontal lines. You are free to select from four mounting versions to perfectly match your existing room situation.
