The most favourable solution of angle correction in radiotherapy

Better results In combination with several thermal masks

A radiotherapy mask is made from thermoplastic material and customized for each patient. The thermoplastic mask for radiotherapy fixes the patient’s head under the radiotherapy device during treatment so that the tissue around the tumor is protected as much as possible. The success of radiotherapy depends largely on the optimal position of the patient, which is ensured by the appropriate thermoplastic radiotherapy mask and a support for the patient’s head and neck. In relation to the cost of radiotherapy, the radiotherapy mask cost is kept within limits. With the RPS head, radiation therapy masks from different manufacturers can be easily attached to the patient table. There are no additional costs for the radiotherapy masks, because the previous systems can still be used. The RPS head allows angular corrections and thus improves the results of the treatment.

Combine the advantages of tomo systems like Accuray TomoTherapy® oder Varian Halcyon® with the advantage of angle correction

Imaging techniques are essential for stereotactic radiotherapy of brain metastases. The more accurately that stereotactic radiotherapy for brain metastases can be delivered, the fewer side effects patients will experience. The innovative Halcyon radiotherapy system uses optimized image-guided radiotherapy to further reduce the side effects of brain radiotherapy and improve patient safety during brain radiotherapy. The Halcyon radiotherapy system is particularly fast and quiet, optimizing patient comfort. The RPS head also adds convenience, as the individual radiotherapy mask is easily attached to the patient table and allows for additional angular corrections through a simple manual system to keep radiotherapy side effects to a minimum.

Optimize the workflow

Different ways for immobilization need different accessories. Add the RPS head to your immobilization tools.

Interfraction motion is the change in position of tumor and organs between radiation sessions. This interfraction motion is checked before each new radiation session to make radiotherapy as efficient and safe as possible. For radiotherapy, immobilization devices are also used to ensure the optimal position of the patient during treatment. These radiotherapy accessories include, for example, thermoplastic face masks. These can be easily and securely attached to the treatment table using the RPS head. As an immobilization device, the RPS head can be manually adjusted to different angles to further improve the quality of radiotherapy. Other aids for radiotherapy include various supports or layers with which the patient can be supported for the duration of the

Radiotherapy mask

Compatible with various thermal mask systems Sub degree correction

Stereotactic radiotherapy for the brain is extremely precise. High single doses can be directed very specifically at the affected tissue during radiotherapy for cancer of the head and neck. This is important because radiotherapy for the brain inevitably takes place in sensitive structures and the surrounding tissue must be spared as much as possible. Special equipment for radiotherapy, such as the add-on RPS head, ensures that the patient’s head and neck can be immobilized during radiotherapy. There are various face masks for radiotherapy. Both one-piece and two-piece face masks are used for radiotherapy. The RPS Head is suitable for both types of face mask – while existing mask types can still be used. The RPS Head provides angular corrections for optimal patient alignment and the successful treatment of cancer in the patient’s head and neck.

Image guided radiotherapy

sub degree correction for better results easy adjustment

Stereotactic image guidance results in an even higher quality of radiotherapy. This is because stereotactic image guidance means that imaging takes place directly on the irradiation device, so that ongoing monitoring enables greater precision and thus greater safety for the patient. The side effects of stereotactic radiotherapy can be significant, especially in brain tumors, if the optic nerve or other important structures pass through the treated area. In order to reduce the side effects of radiotherapy as much as possible, a great deal of time is invested in planning the radiation treatment. Imaging techniques are used to optimize the radiation angle and dose to avoid side effects. Immobilization devices for radiotherapy, such as the RPS head, ensure that the patient’s pre-calculated position remains in place during the actual radiation treatment.
The RPS head is a cost-effective device for immobilizing the head and neck. It allows important angle corrections and is supplemented with a mask individually adapted to the patient.

Brain radiotherapy

Improve the success rate of brain cancer treatment Pinpoint radiation for the life beyond

Radiation therapy for brain tumors is usually given in several steps:
• Diagnosis and indication
• Planning of brain radiotherapy
• Simulation of radiotherapy for the brain tumor
• Delivery
• Follow-up care

Radiotherapy equipment images improve the effectiveness of radiotherapy for brain tumors. In the radiotherapy plan, the location and size of the tumor can be precisely identified through imaging. Physicians and radiation physicists jointly determine the radiation dose on the basis of CT images on the computer. The radiation fields for brain radiotherapy are checked in a simulation and devices for fixation, such as the RPS head, are adapted.

With the RPS head, angle corrections can be set manually and the position optimized. Images from radiotherapy equipment ensure that the target volume is actually achieved during the actual brain radiotherapy and allow ongoing monitoring of the treatment to protect the patient.

  • Compatible for all thermal masks
  • Compatible to all indexing systems

systems Improve the accuracy

According to industry estimates, the radiotherapy market is growing by six to ten percent each year. Studies on the global growth in the radiotherapy market correlate with the increase in cancer cases. Accordingly, brain cancer radiotherapy will also continue to grow. Combined with new therapies, brain cancer radiotherapy will further improve patients‘ chances of recovery in the future. Today, numerous brain tumors can already be prevented from growing further by radiotherapy, which can delay the course of the disease by years. A very good treatment option in the field of radiotherapy is tomotherapy, in which the rays can be directed at the patient from all sides. Supplemented with the RPS mini and the RPS Head, angular errors can be corrected to optimally position the patient.

The RPS Head is an inexpensive and easy-to-use tool for adjusting angles in all three directions by up to 4 degrees. The interaction of both systems results in optimal radiation results in radiotherapy of the brain, while side effects are avoided as much as possible.

Fractioned radiotherapy

Take care on the deviation between the
immobilization setups and correct it easy

Radiotherapy is commonly used to treat brain tumors because it is usually gentler than surgery. Head and neck radiotherapy are continuously being developed and improved for the benefit of patients. Radiotherapy for brain tumors is usually fractionated, which means that several radiation sessions are necessary. This gives the body’s healthy cells time to recover between sessions of head and neck radiotherapy. To avoid side effects, the radiation field is narrowed as much as possible and tailored to the tumor. With a radiotherapy mask, the patient’s head is fixed to the treatment table via the RPS head to prevent involuntary movements or minimal deviations caused by the patient’s breathing.

The radiotherapy mask is customized and precision-made for each patient and can usually be used for all radiation sessions during the treatment period.

Stereotactic radiotherapy

Improve the immobilization accuracy
For a better life beyond

Radiotherapy for brain cancer may be combined with other therapies, such as chemotherapy or surgery. Because of the head’s easy mobility, immobilization is very important during radiotherapy to the area of the head or neck. For this purpose, a treatment mask is modeled which can be fixed to the treatment table via the RPS head. The RPS head allows fine angular correction for optimal immobilization during radiotherapy for brain cancer. Stereotactic radiotherapy has improved overall patient survival in the treatment of brain cancer.

The precision of stereotactic radiotherapy allows radiation to be delivered at high doses that significantly improve the success of the treatment while sparing the surrounding normal tissues.
