Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR POSITIONING A BREAST FOR RADIATION TREATMENT
(FR) APPAREIL DE POSITIONNEMENT D’UN SEIN POUR UNE RADIOTHÉRAPIE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides a method and apparatus to decrease acute and late skin toxicity for breast cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy. This invention will enable better breast positioning during therapy, eliminating skin folds and reducing the skin dose below that required for development of moist desquamation. The present invention has the potential to reduce the volume of normal tissue and organs at risk of being irradiated during a course of whole breast radiation therapy.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une méthode et un appareil permettant de diminuer la toxicité aiguë et tardive de la peau pour des patients atteints d'un cancer du sein subissant une radiothérapie. Cette invention permettra un meilleur positionnement du sein pendant une thérapie, éliminant les plis de la peau et réduisant la dose peau inférieure à celle requise pour le développement d'une desquamation humide. La présente invention a le potentiel de réduire le volume de tissu normal et d'organes à risque d'être irradié pendant un cours de radiothérapie du sein entier.
