Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR ROTATING SHIELD BRACHYTHERAPY
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ POUR CURIETHÉRAPIE À ÉCRAN ROTATIF
Abstract
(EN)
Methods and systems are described for a rotating shield brachytherapy device. As disclosed herein, the rotating shield brachytherapy (RSBT) apparatus may comprise a radiation source, a drive assembly, a catheter, and an applicator. The applicator can have an outer surface and opposed proximal and distal end portions and a longitudinal axis extending along a length of the catheter. The distal end portion of the catheter can comprise one or more radiation shields and is configured to receive the radiation source. The drive assembly can be configured to engage the proximal end portion of the catheter to selectively rotate the catheter about the longitudinal axis.

La présente invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes pour un appareil de curiethérapie à écran rotatif. Selon l'invention, l'appareil de curiethérapie à écran rotatif (CER) peut comprendre une source de rayonnement, un ensemble d'entraînement, un cathéter et un applicateur. L'applicateur peut comporter une surface externe et des parties d'extrémité proximale et distale opposées et un axe longitudinal se prolongeant sur toute la longueur du cathéter. La partie d'extrémité distale du cathéter peut comprendre un ou plusieurs écrans anti-rayonnement et est conçue pour recevoir la source de rayonnement. L'ensemble d'entraînement peut être conçu pour venir en prise avec la partie d'extrémité proximale du cathéter afin de faire tourner sélectivement le cathéter autour de l'axe longitudinal.
