The Technology

GammaPod is the world's first stereotactic radiotherapy system optimized for treating breast cancer.

With GammaPod, radiation oncologists will be at the forefront of a new era in cancer care by providing sterotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for breast cancer. The delivery of higher doses in one or several large fractions differentiates sterotactic radiotherapy from conventional techniques.

The GammaPod system is composed of the treatment delivery system, the stereotactic localization and immobilization device, prone patient loading systems and a treatment planning system.

Treatment Delivery System

GammaPod uses the combination of dynamic dose painting and table motion, continuously rotating beams and dynamically changing collimators to create highly conformal dose distributions with rapid fall off.  The irradiation unit sits beneath the patient table, so patients lay above the sources for treatment delivery.

How it works

  • Multisource Cobalt-60 stereotactic radiotherapy system
  • Continuously rotates during treatment, creating thousands of beam angles
  • Individual beams converge to create an intense focal spot, delivering the full dose to the target while sparing surrounding healthy tissue
  • 25mm and 15mm collimators dynamically change during treatment
  • Table motion during treatment enables dynamic dose painting as the focal spot moves across the target in three dimensions
