Radiotherapy – Orthovoltage

Overview

WOmed radiotherapy treatment machines have been successfully used in humans around the world. Being capable of penetrating to an effective treatment depth of a few mms to a few cms for the treatment of superficial and semi-superficial lesions they may be particularly suited for the treatment of animals. With their lesser penetrating power compared to the x-rays of linear accelerators, WOmed devices can be used for treating small animals and superficial lesions of large animals.

WOmed devices are mobile and their reduced requirement for radiation shielding compared to linear accelerators, means they are particularly suited to varied veterinary settings including intra-operative radiotherapy. The machines are available in a range of energies and hence effective penetrating depths.

The ioRT-50 machine can be effectively used for intra-operative radiotherapy, where the applicator is placed in direct contact with the malignant lesion at the time of surgery.

The technical information below is generic for human and veterinary use, so please contact us directly to explore the options that may benefit your practice.

The WOmed product portfolio includes the T-105 which is designed for superficial X-ray therapy in a range of 10 to 100 kV, and consists of a mobile cart with mounted stand and tube head. The T-300, T-200, and T-160 series of devices can be used in superficial, intermediate and deep radiation therapy, in the voltage range of 15 to 300 kV, depending on the system, and thus meet the latest clinical requirements. The ioRT-50 system extends the range of devices for conventional radiotherapy by a further system for superficial therapy which additionally provides intraoperative x-ray therapy. It has a maximum tube voltage of 70 kV.

ioRT-50 - Efficient Application for Superficial and Intraoperative X-Ray Therapy

ioRT-50 x-ray therapy units are intended for superficial and intraoperative x-ray therapy. The ioRT-50 unit consists of an all-in-one mobile trolley with a mounted x-ray tube stand. It is operated via an integrated touchscreen panel or remotely via a tablet PC. The tube head is mounted on a spring-loaded arm and can be turned on two axes. The spring-loaded arm itself is easy to move for height setting. A clamping mechanism enables the preselected stand position to remain stable while treating the standing, sitting or lying patient.

T-105 - Efficient Application for Superficial X-Ray Therapy

X-ray therapy units of the type T-105 are intended for superficial x-ray therapy in a range of 10 to 100 kV. The unit T-105 consists of an all-in-one mobile trolley with a mounted x-ray tube stand. A separate control desk and a touchscreen PC allow operation from a shielded area. The tube head is mounted on a spring arm and is able to be turned in two axes. The spring arm itself is easy to move for height setting. A clamping mechanism allows that the preselected stand position remains stable for the treatment of the standing, sitting or lying patient. Directly at the tube head, the selection of one of the four filters is possible.

T-160 - A Wide Range of X-Ray Therapy

The powerful 160 kV unit provides high dose rates for semi-deep therapy. A choice of “soft“ spectra for superficial x-ray treatment is possible. The T-160 effectively meets the clinical practice guidelines for radiotherapy procedures. An integral part is a powerful standalone verification system, RadControl - II, for treatment planning and fully paperless documentation. It can be upgraded to a client network system. With the easy-to-use 2D ceiling mount also in small treatment rooms, a variety of settings are possible. Several options complete the system to form an effective therapy unit.

T-200 - A Whole Range of X-Ray Therapy

The powerful 200 kV unit provides high dose rates for the orthovoltage-deep or semi-deep therapy. A choice of “soft“ spectra for superficial x-ray treatment is possible. The T-200 effectively meets good clinical practice guidelines on radiotherapy procedures. An integral part is a powerful networkable verification & record system, RadControl - II, for treatment planning and fully paperless documentation. With the easy-to-use 3D ceiling mount also in large treatment rooms, a variety of settings are possible. Several options complete the system to form an effective therapy unit.

T-300 - A Whole Range of X-Ray Therapy

The powerful 300 kV unit provides high dose rates for the orthovoltage-deep or semi-deep therapy. A choice of “soft“ spectra for superficial x-ray treatment is possible. The T-300 effectively meets good clinical practice guidelines on radiotherapy procedures. An integral part is a powerful networkable verification & record system, RadControl - II, for treatment planning and fully paperless documentation. With the easy-to-use 3D ceiling mount also in large treatment rooms, a variety of settings are possible. Several options complete the system to form an effective therapy unit.
