Free Breathing Method
The optional Gating Module for Siemens® enables free breathing techniques for specific treatments. The patient is positioned for treatment and breathes freely without seeing the breathing curve in the video glasses. When the software identifies that the patient is breathing normaly, it starts the process of image acquisition. The CT is configured based on the respiratory cycles.
The image acquisition takes place between X-Ray on and X-Ray off. A specific .vxp fi le is provided and can be used with the image reconstruction software (CT or TPS).
