The process for treatment is the same as CT Scanning. With the SDX® System, the patient remains in control by voluntarily repeating breath holds during the course of treatment. The clinician monitors the breathing pattern to determine the optimal moment for delivering the radiation.
Optional Gating Modules (Varian® C-Series, Varian® ProBeam®, IBA™ Proteus®PLUS)
Allow to hold/stop the beam if the patient cannot maintain his breath hold until the end of the radiation treatment.
The patient voluntarily performs multiple breath holds in the target inspiration zone, allowing the full treatment dose to be delivered.
