GALAXY can help to detect and correct interfractional and intrafractional changes. Positioning can be adapted according to any discrepancies. On sites with remote controlled couches, these corrections can be carried out automatically*.
A high speed precision Laser Scanner and Camera are mounted on the ceiling in front of the Linac, Simulator, CT or MR. This hardware is controlled through a Windows based 3-D-Imaging Software. This Software covers a wide range of RT applications, including Positioning, Alignment, Motion Monitoring and Gating.
Enter the Patient data manually or by DICOM import
from RT plan.
Scan the Reference Image prior to the first session on the Linac, or import the Skin contour from a CT image, or a GALAXY system mounted on another Modality.
Treatment Set Up
Scan the Patient. The unique algorithm compares the current treatment position with the Reference Image, automatically calculates the required Couch Adjustments and instantly provides the Couch Shift Vectors in 6 axes.
Protocols are created and stored automatically.
