Particles

Particle beam treatments for cancer - for example the proton irradiation therapy - are a type of external beam therapy. For the success of particle beam treatments, the high precision of the patients positioning in treatment rooms is essential to the procedure. Medcom has developed an international de-facto standard for positioning & verification for proton irradiations: Verisuite is a high precision patient verification system, optimized for fast clinical workflow in treatment rooms.

Leading vendors worldwide for particle therapy systems like IBA, Varian and Sumitomo are benefiting from the preciseness of the fast automatic calculation, which allows to verify and control the patients position with a correction vector for positioning and correction in 6 degrees of freedom to a sub-millimeter.
