VeriSuite

Patient Positioning and Verification System

Particle beam systems require a highly accurate positioning of the patient before and during the treatment. Leading vendors for particle therapy such as IBA, Varian, Sumitomo and others rely on MedCom's VeriSuite® in highprecision patient positioning and verification.

VeriSuite® automatically aligns two DRR images rendered from a high quality CT scan of the patient with two corresponding X-ray images acquired during the treatment. Thereby it provides a six degrees of freedom correction vector with a sub-millimeter accuracy. X-ray acquisition, automatic registration and correction calculations are completed within a few seconds allowing for seamless integration in the treatment workflow.

VeriSuite® functionality includes image acquisition, interfacing with Oncology Information Systems (e.g. Mosaiq or Aria), image registration, calculations for automatic correction of the patient's position and sending the correction vector to the therapy control system. Additional features include patient prepositioning in a 'Setup Room' outside the treatment unit, and offline review with the VeriSuite® stand-alone Viewer.
