Discover our DSPS system® at the 2019 AAPM congress in San Antonio

Waddinxveen, the Netherlands, July 9, 2019

Macromedics, the innovation leader in patient positioning solutions for radiation oncology, is proud to present the Double Shell Positioning System® at the AAMP Congress. The 61st AAPM Annual Meeting and Exhibition will be held in the Henry B. González Convention Center, which is nestled in the heart of historic downtown San Antonio, Texas.

The Macromedics DSPS® Double Shell Positioning System

The DSPS system® consists of 2 masks made of special thermoplastic materials. The patented material of the occipital mask is rigid enough to hold the patient’s head during moulding. There is no need for an additional head support and there is full access to customize the mask around neck and occipital bones. The facial mask is not overstretched and therefore extremely rigid. Both masks do not shrink, resulting in a comfortable set-up for the patient.

The advanced double shell design enables the clinician to achieve high precision positioning for stereotactic cases, creating a new standard of accuracy² in frameless stereotactic radiosurgery.

DSPS system® is a patented product of Macromedics.
