With a growing number of patients being treated with Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy each year, there is a need for ever improving positioning devices. One of the key benefits of IMRT is its precise targeting abilities, allowing the separation of beam entry sites and thus the sparing of healthy tissues.
IMRT treatments for head and neck cancer are often performed five days a week for up to six weeks in duration. Each session involves precise planning and a need for highly accurate positioning. This is where our custom IPD’s come into use. We design a unique IPD for each IMRT patient to maximize the protection of healthy tissues and structures, while creating a comfortable position that can be replicated every day of the treatment.
Using the latest in 3D design and manufacturing, we create positioning devices that are not only more comfortable than off- the-shelf pieces currently available, they are also more effective. RadTec Intraoral Positioning Devices represent a breakthrough in 3D manufacturing that allows customized medical devices to be deployed in everyday use for patients around the world.
Every IPD is custom made for the individual, thus maximizing the benefits and comfort of IMRT treatment, while simultaneously improving the quality of life for each patient.
