A step-by-step process shows how easy it is to use BodyFIX for patient positioning and immobilization. The personalized system offers versatility for a wide range of modalities and disease sites.
A cushioned BlueBAG gives gentle compression to envelop and support the body. Creating a relaxing, secure environment helps lessen a patient's inter- and intrafractional motion.
Compatible with various clinical indications and delivery platforms, the advanced vacuum technology ensures stability, thereby promoting artifact-free imaging.
The special design is custom-fitted to maintain a patient's shape. After initial setup, each individualized form is reusable, offering consistency and accelerating treatment time to optimize workflow.
Researchers compared three immobilization devices on intrafaction motion for the spine stereotactic body radiotherapy using cone beam computed tomography.
Researchers compared three immobilization platforms for spinal stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and BodyFIX® proved most effective. Highly conformal radiation to extremely sensitive locations requires tight planning margins and steep dose gradients to normal tissue. BodyFIX® minimized patient motion, reducing errors in imaging and treatment. READ MORE
