Differentiate specific points of reference in conventional simulation and port films
Burnout resistant skin markers improve accuracy, save time
Conventional simulation differs greatly from CT simulation in that the tumor is localized in only two dimensions.
Burnout may occur in conventional simulations when the beam over-penetrates an object and produces an overexposed area on the image.
When this happens, the patient must either be re-simulated, or the dosimetrist must contour the body shape so that an accurate dose distribution can be calculated for treatment.
Metallic pellets, line, and arrow offer a broad range of use in conventional simulation
Skin markers act as a guide for radiation oncology teams who want to be sure the right tissue is being irradiated. They also help reduce the concern a dosimetrist may have with manually contouring the image due to burnout.
Beekley Medical’s SPOT® skin markers for conventional simulation image brightly and serve as guides for determining isocenters and 3-point set-ups.
Burnout resistant, this family of metallic pellets, line, and directional arrow are used to identify critical structures and areas of concern and mark field borders, breast tangents, scars, match lines, outer canthus, and nodes.
