Calypso
Calypso
The Calyso® system, also known as “GPS for the body,” continuously tracks a tumour’sAn abnormal mass of tissue that results when cells divide more than they should or do not die when they should. Tumours may be benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancer). position during radiationEnergy released in the form of particle or electromagnetic waves. Common sources of radiation include radon gas, cosmic rays from outer space, medical x-rays and energy given off by a radioisotope (unstable form of a chemical element that releases radiation as it breaks down and becomes more stable). treatment, enabling your clinicians to keep the beam focused on the tumour, minimising the dose to surrounding healthy tissue.
Edge
Edge
The Edge™ system is a high precision radiosurgery Also called radiation surgery or stereotactic radiosurgery. A type of external radiation therapy that uses special equipment or a linac to position the patient and precisely give 1-5 large doses of radiation to a tumour. It was first used to treat brain tumours and other brain disorders that could not be treated by regular surgery. It is also being studied in the treatment of other types of cancer. system that provides a non-invasive A procedure that does not require inserting an instrument through the skin or into a body opening. alternative to traditional surgery. The Edge delivers high intensity beams with precision and accuracy to parts of the body that are often difficult to treat with surgery.
HDR Brachytherapy
HDR Brachytherapy
Brachytherapy is a radiotherapy Also called radiation therapy, is the use of high-energy radiation from x-rays, gamma rays, neutrons, protons and other sources to kill cancer cells and shrink tumours. technique that treats cancer by placing radioactive sources directly into or next to the target treatment area.
IGRT
IGRT
Image-guided radiotherapy Also called radiation therapy, is the use of high-energy radiation from x-rays, gamma rays, neutrons, protons and other sources to kill cancer cells and shrink tumours. or IGRT uses sophisticated imaging technologies to guide the delivery of precise forms of radiation therapy Also called radiotherapy and irradiation. The use of high-energy radiation from x-rays, gamma rays, neutrons, protons and other sources to kill cancer cells and shrink tumours. Radiation may come from a machine outside the body (external-beam radiation therapy) or it may come from radioactive material placed in the body near cancer cells (internal radiation therapy)., allowing your doctors to see and track a tumour at the time of treatment.
IMRT
IMRT
Intensity modulated radiation therapy, or IMRT, adjusts the shape and intensity of the radiation Energy released in the form of particle or electromagnetic waves. Common sources of radiation include radon gas, cosmic rays from outer space, medical x-rays and energy given off by a radioisotope (unstable form of a chemical element that releases radiation as it breaks down and becomes more stable). radiation beam to precisely conform to the area being treated.
ProBeam
ProBeam
The ProBeam™ proton therapy Proton therapy, also called proton beam therapy, is a type of radiation treatment that uses protons rather than x-rays to treat cancer. A proton is a positively charged particle which, at high energy, can destroy cancer cells. system uses protons rather than X-rays to treat cancerous tumours with great precision. It is effective for certain types of cancers and can treat with a high dose of radiation to the tumour, while delivering lower radiation to the surrounding healthy tissue.
RapidArc
RapidArc
RapidArc® radiotherapyAlso called radiation therapy, is the use of high-energy radiation from x-rays, gamma rays, neutrons, protons and other sources to kill cancer cells and shrink tumours. is an advanced volumetric arc therapy that combines the use of both IMRT and IGRT. It delivers a treatment in typically less than two minutes with a single 360-degree rotation of the accelerator gantry The part of the accelerator out of which the radiation beam comes is called a gantry, which can be rotated around the patient. Radiation can be delivered to the tumour from any angle by rotating the gantry and moving the treatment couch.
The Novalis Tx
The Novalis Tx
The Novalis Tx™ is a powerful radiosurgery Also called radiation surgery or stereotactic radiosurgery. A type of external radiation therapy that uses special equipment or a linac to position the patient and precisely give 1-5 large doses of radiation to a tumour. It was first used to treat brain tumours and other brain disorders that could not be treated by regular surgery. It is also being studied in the treatment of other types of cancer. system that uses image-guidance and motion management tools to provide your doctors with information about the size, shape and position of a tumor, while closely monitoring the patient via a closed-circuit television monitoring system.
Trilogy
Trilogy
The Trilogy™ system combines treatment and imaging in a linear accelerator A machine that uses electricity to form a stream of fast-moving subatomic particles. This creates high-energy radiation that may be used to treat cancer. Also called linac, mega-voltage linear accelerator and MeV linear accelerator. that treats a wide variety of cancers. It offers a range of treatment modalities such as Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), for both radiation therapy Also called radiotherapy and irradiation. The use of high-energy radiation from x-rays, gamma rays, neutrons, protons and other sources to kill cancer cells and shrink tumours. Radiation may come from a machine outside the body (external-beam radiation therapy) or it may come from radioactive material placed in the body near cancer cells (internal radiation therapy). and radiosurgery Also called radiation surgery or stereotactic radiosurgery. A type of external radiation therapy that uses special equipment or a linac to position the patient and precisely give 1-5 large doses of radiation to a tumour. It was first used to treat brain tumours and other brain disorders that could not be treated by regular surgery. It is also being studied in the treatment of other types of cancer. cases.
TrueBeam
TrueBeam
The TrueBeam® system provides fast, precise, non-invasive treatments for a wide range of cancers. A powerful system for both radiotherapy Also called radiation therapy, is the use of high-energy radiation from x-rays, gamma rays, neutrons, protons and other sources to kill cancer cells and shrink tumours. and radiosurgery Also called radiation surgery or stereotactic radiosurgery. A type of external radiation therapy that uses special equipment or a linac to position the patient and precisely give 1-5 large doses of radiation to a tumour. It was first used to treat brain tumours and other brain disorders that could not be treated by regular surgery. It is also being studied in the treatment of other types of cancer., TrueBeam delivers the latest in advanced treatment techniques.
