Image Guided Patient Positioning

The goal of radiation therapy is to optimally align the beam with a tumor. For the most accurate positioning of the tumor, the P-Cure system does not use indirect information on the tumor location, such as fiducial markers. Our FDA approved system, analyzes a stream of low dose CT images, or the CT-based digitally reconstructed radiographs, and defines the appropriate patient position based on the actual tumor localization.

The “seeing is believing” approach of patient positioning enables us to guide the integrated 6 Degree-of-Freedom patient positioning system with maximal accuracy.  

Although our system is principally designed to treat inclined seated patients, the system can accommodate a patient in a supine position. To this end, the chair is replaced with a couch.
