Title (EN) PATIENT POSITINING SYSTEM AND METHODS FOR DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY AND RADIOTHERAPY
(FR) SYSTÈME DE POSITIONNEMENT D'UN PATIENT ET PROCÉDÉS DE RADIOLOGIE DE DIAGNOSTIC ET DE RADIOTHÉRAPIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The system provides new ways to ensure that a patient is positioned correctly, e.g. identically with an original planning scan if the patient is to undergo radiotherapy. The system also detects if there is patient movement during a scan. It is an aspect of the present method to immobilize the patient based on a specific site of interest by using positioning sensors that record patient physical orientation based on measurements of patient weight distribution and pressure distribution among other features.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système qui fournit deux manières de garantir qu'un patient est positionné correctement, p. ex. de manière identique à un balayage originel de planification si le patient doit subir une radiothérapie. Le système détecte également les mouvements du patient pendant un balayage. Selon un aspect, le présent procédé vise à immobiliser le patient en fonction d'un site d'intérêt spécifique en utilisant des capteurs de positionnement qui enregistrent l'orientation physique du patient en fonction de mesures de la distribution de poids et de la distribution de pression du patient, entre autres caractéristiques.
