Project Description

The new RayPilot® tumor tracking sensor will updated with a dosimeter for in-situ dosimetry*. This video shows that the measurements works very well when radiation tests is performed on a linac at he radiotherapy department in Borås, Sweden. The RayPilot® system is developed for increased precision in radiotherapy of prostate cancer. The RayPilot® system is an electromagnetic positioning system that initially enables real time position of the prostate for a fast and objective set-up and for continuous positioning during the treatment. A precise and safe localization of the tumor can dramatically improve the outcome of the treatment, particularly for hypofractionated protocols. The RayPilot® system consists mainly of three parts; a transmitter that is placed in the ROI, a receiving system that is placed directly on any existing treatment coach and software that continuously shows where the tumor is and where to beam. The transmitter is removed after the final treatment in order to enable MRI follow-up.
