Tackling cancer – Tumor therapy using Siemens technology for targeted and gentle radiation
Access points from the Siemens Scalance portfolio provide reliable communication between the VCD and the TrueBeam system. Tumors which move with breathing represent a particular challenge in radiation therapy. The Scalance W774-1 access points are insensitive to the scattered radiation which occurs as well as neutrons – an important criterion for error-free operation.
In order to breathe as evenly as possible during treatment, the patient is given a Visual Coaching Device (VCD), a tablet which displays her breathing pattern in real time and allows her to control it more easily. The long availability of spare parts ensures a quick return on investment and international approval of all components makes it easier for these machines to be used across the globe.
