3D printed, custom-fitting, uniform-thickness bolus for external beam photon or electron radiotherapy.  This bolus is generated directly from the patient’s CT planning data. The thickness may be set by the treatment planner to control surface dose as required.  Typical applications include radiotherapy of the chestwall or treatment of skin cancer at any site.  This bolus fits equally well to simple or highly complex surface geometries, reducing air gaps and resultant surface dose uncertainty.  Fabrication of 3D bolus does not require the presence of the patient and does not occupy the radiation therapist's valuable time in CT simulation or mould room.

SMART Bolus technology provides practical and low-cost approach to Modulated Electron Radiation Therapy (MERT).  Electron SMART Bolus takes advantage of our proprietary algorithms to conform the prescription isodose to the target volume, while ensuring coverage and dose uniformity.  The optimized bolus object can be imported into the treatment planning system for final dose calculation and review, then 3D printed for immediate use.

Low dose-buildup immobilization for treatment of the intact breast. This unique solution provides rigid but ultra low-density immobilization, offering inter- and intra-fractional reproducibility, while minimizing dose buildup that may result in acute toxicity and poor cosmesis during treatment. The patient may be placed in the usual treatment position, e.g., including a support to elevate the breast from the chestwall, and the immobilization is generated directly from planning CT data, without the presence of the patient, radiotherapist or CT resources.

Conformal fit, optimization of catheter trajectories.

Conformal fit, optimization of catheter trajectories.

Conforms to surface anatomy to prevent air gaps.  Catheter trajectories can be optimized to improve the dose distribution and prevent jamming of the source.
