SDX Respiratory Gating System

SDX Respiratory Gating System

The SDX® System’s unique ability to pair a patient’s inspiration rate and lung volume measurement with clear visual biofeedback makes it possible to maximize the stability of internal organs and the tumor treatment zone. This allows for an increased dose to the tumor with decreased toxicity to vital organs. SDX® is a spirometry based system for managing thoracic and abdominal tumor motion during imaging and radiation therapy.

SDX® can be used for both voluntary breath hold and free breathing techniques for :

  • Reducing tumor motion during imaging and treatment
  • Enhancing tumor imaging and visualization
  • Reducing treatment margins
  • Increasing dose with decreased toxicity to vital organs
  • Repositioning vital organs out of the high dose region

Using SDX® with DIBH expands healthy lung tissue out of the high dose region

SDX® with DIBH allows dose escalation while reducing both lung and cardiac toxicity.

Image Improvement

Using SDX® with DIBH Enhances tumor imaging

SDX® System with DIBH manages organ movement within the thoracic cavity allowing for enhanced imaging and visualization.

Left Breast Patient

Using SDX® with DIBH repositions the heart out of the high dose region

SDX® with DIBH is a highly effective cardiac sparing technique to treat left-sided breast cancer.

DIBH allows for the displacement of the heart during the isocenter planning process, thus allowing greater reduction in dose to the heart. With the use of this technique tangent radiation beams can effectively treat tumors while reducing dose to the heart.

The liver can be spared to a larger extent with DIBH for right sided breast cancer.
