The virtual simulation systems from HIT 1 to HIT 6 integrate a device of automatic adjustment for the lasers called “SmartPhantom CT“.
No manual adjustment is needed: real ISO automatic calibration.
This device, placed on the scanner table and positioned at the isocenter of the laser can, due to its many integrated sensors, evaluate and analyze the convergence of the laser beams.
The Software that controls the lasers makes them flash 10000 times per second. Thanks to this modulation, the optical cells can distinguish the lasers from all other light sources in the room.
Once the signal acquisition sequence has been launched, the SmartPhantom CT can provide the exact coordinates of the laser beams, through the Tablet PC.
Therefore, these will automatically be adjusted to an accuracy of +/– 0.1mm.
This adjustment session lasts about 10 minutes.
The SmartPhantom RT is a device that allows the automatic adjustment and alignment of CYRPA’s HITM system (fixed lasers with motorization).
The phantom has three integral laser pointers to assist set-up in just a few minutes and is compatible with all types of linear accelerator.
The device is equipped with 15 high-precision cells, which allow guiding the laser lines in order to adjust them to the collimator’s center, in around 10 minutes.
At the end of the fully automatic sequence generated by CyrpaSoft, a Quality Certificate in PDF format is automatically delivered.
Our knowledgeable and experienced C-RAD Services team is here for you during the entire lifetime of the systems. We guide you from installation and clinical implementation, through preventive maintenance, support and continuous software upgrades.
