Calypso® Extracranial Tracking

The Calypso® system and Beacon® transponders for lung, surface and soft tissue deliver precise and accurate tumor tracking in real time. This enables radiation oncology clinicians to keep the target in the path of the radiation beam at all times. Tumor tracking becomes even more significant when using escalated doses for treatment. By detecting the slightest tumor movement and guiding the therapist in repositioning the patient if necessary, the Calypso system enables clinicians to deliver high doses of radiation directly to the tumor while potentially avoiding healthy surrounding tissues.
