The characteristic features of LAP laser systems are sophisticated technology, quality and design for more than 30 year. The high level of excellence has made LAP the global market leader for patient alignment in radiation therapy.
Precise patient marking, accurate planning and exact positioning are key factors for successful treatment. Patient marking takes place during CT based virtual simulation and is required for reproducible treatment positioning on the linac.
APOLLO lasers are used for precise and repeatable positioning of radiotherapy patient. After imaging based planning via CT or MRI, the patient is positioned at linear accelerator. The laser lines project the Linac isocenter coordinates onto the patient’s skin, allowing for precise alignment to millimeter accuracy with the CT/ MRI. In addition, the room lasers are fundamental component for quality assurance. They aid in the precise orientation of the phantom, to achieve measurement accuracy.
The APOLLO system has tree (optionally four) lasers for the coronal, sagittal and tranversal body planes. Laser colour, line and/ or cross laser and mounting option can be adapted to individual room situation. The optional fourth laser prevents possible shadowing for the linac gantry.
Depending on the individual workflow, different body planes are projected by the DORADOnova laser system for marking the patient. Precise marking is necessary for the subsequent irridation at the LINAC. Our DORADOnova laser systems can be completely configured according to your needs. You have the choice of whether only one or all five laser lines can be moved. Choose between the three laser colours red, green or blue. The laser control software CARINAnav will be delivered pre-installed on a tablet or desktop PC. Fine adjustment of the laser lines can be done by remote control in all degrees of freedom.
The two movable sagittal and coronal lines allow our laser system to offer increased flexibility for marking and virtual simulation. The transversal body plane is projected via fixed lasers.
Customized laser bridge system configuration for a corresponding projection of laser lines according to CT position. The sagittal and coronal planes are steerable by the included CARINAnav laser control, allowing easy and efficient patient alignment. The control software is operated by a touch screen mounted to the customized bridge, for easy laser control in the MR room. The fibre optic connection to the PC in the control room fulfils the electromagnetic interference requirements for MR.Read more
The ASTOR room lasers allow precisely reproducible positioning of the patient on the linear accelerator. The finest laser lines, with a max. 1 mm width, project the isocenter for highly precise patient positioning. Room lasers are also a fundamental element of phantom alignment for quality assurance.
The ASTOR system has three (optionally four) lasers for alignment with skin markings. You can choose laser color, design variant, and line or cross lasers, all individually adapted to your room situation and workflow. A fourth laser can be used to prevent potential shadowing from the gantry.
Ultra-precise laser lines in red or green are made possible by state-of-the-art precision mechanics and optics. ASTOR room lasers are reduced to the maximum, so even a modest budget can achieve the highest degree of precision.
With the CARINAnav control system, movable lasers in DORADO and DORADOnova laser systems can be positioned. It is the connecting piece between the therapy planning system and the LAP laser systems mentioned before CARINAnav transmits the exact spatial coordinates to the movable lasers, which projects the laser lines onto the patient with precision. To position the lasers, the spatial coordinates from the scheduling system are transmitted to the CARINAnav control system. If no connection to a scheduling system is available, the coordinates can be entered manually on the tablet. Lasers and control system are connected reliably via Bluetooth. All CARINAnav control system components are tested and approved for use in a clinical environment.
CARINAnav has two modes: In Clinical Mode, patients are precisely aligned in the clinical workflow using the laser lines, and the reference point is marked. In Service Mode, the laser system is set up, and the lasers are aligned with the virtual isocenter.
