Breast & Thorax
- Quick and efficient patient set-up
- Homogeneous IGRT treatment zone
- Ergonomic design
Accurate patient positioning is one of the main challenges in breast and thorax radiotherapy. MacroMedics® offers a range of positioning boards to suit all types of radiation therapy. While each board has its own specific features for different types of treatments and patient groups, every MacroMedics® breast & thorax board is characterized by a high level of patient comfort combined with maximum adjustability and user friendliness.
At MacroMedics® we offer various products to make breast treatment more comfortable for the patient. Our breast treatment line includes the BreastBoard SX™ and BreastBoard LX™. These boards have a straightforward design for quick, easy and efficient patient set-up. The BreastBoard SX™ is the elementary model of the MacroMedics® breast treatment line, offering an efficient and modern solution. It is an ergonomic breast treatment device securing reproducible day to day patient set-up. The BreastBoard LX™ is the premium, stand-alone breast board featuring four arm supports which are easy to adjust. Both boards use a coreless, single carbon fiber layer for low attenuation. As a result, the boards provide an IGRT treatment zone with maximum homogeneity, stiffness and stability.
The Breast treatment Module EX™ is specially designed to host the EagleBoard-2™ and can be used on the OmniCouch™, the OmniBoard™ or the FlexBoard™. When combined with the EagleBoard-2™, the Breast Treatment Module EX™ provides a quick and easy patient configuration for the treatment of the chest, lung and thorax. The design is based on the concept of wing immobilization.
