Blue Phantom PT

Beam commissioning and machine QA for
Pencil Beam scanning.

Overview

Beam commissioning and Machine QA for PBS Pencil Beam Scanning

A targeted solution for the most efficient Quality Assurance

  • Faster machine QA: Minimum water volume for fast filling and faster setup of 50%*
  • Most accurate commissioning: Accurate detector positioning down to 50 μm
  • Compatibility for all PT machines: Magnetic resistant positioning sensors offer full compatibility with all PT systems on the market
  • Easy handling and positioning with a compact design and weight of less than 11 kg (without water)
  • Certified position accuracy: ± 50 μm
  • Inductive sensor positioning with high resistance to magnetic fields and a resolution of <1μm
  • Save time through fast positioning speed, chamber movement of 20 mm/s
  • Step-by-Step and continuous scanning mode
  • Thin (replaceable) PMMA window of PMMA for low range measurements
  • Scan range  up to 380 mm water equivalent depth
