Title (EN) A RIGID PATIENT SUPPORT ELEMENT FOR LOW PATIENT SKIN DAMAGE WHEN USED IN A RADIATION THERAPY ENVIRONMENT
(FR) ELEMENT DE SUPPORT RIGIDE POUR PATIENT ENGENDRANT DE FAIBLES DEGATS CUTANES, LORS DE SON UTILISATION DANS UN ENVIRONNEMENT DE RADIOTHERAPIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A rigid patient support element that is substantially transparent to high energy x-radiation comprising a structural core and one or more perforated face sheets attached to at least one of the top side or bottom side of the element. The support element reduces Compton scattering thereby reducing patient skin damage. The support element of the present invention can be integrated into a patient support surface, used as an insert or used as a spacer and easily removable from a patient support surface.
(FR)L'invention concerne un élément de support rigide de patient pratiquement transparent aux rayons x d'énergie élevée, ledit élément comprenant un noyau structurel et au moins une feuille de face perforée attachée au côté supérieur ou au côté inférieur dudit élément. Cet élément de support permet de diminuer la diffusion de Compton et, donc, les dégâts cutanés causés à un patient. Ledit élément de support de cette invention peut être intégré dans une surface de support de patient, utilisé en tant que pièce d'insertion ou espaceur et il est, facilement, amovible d'une surface de support de patient.
