The Calypso® 4D Localization SystemTM displays and records prostate motion-continuously in real-time-through an intuitive graphical user interface. Clinicians use the visual and audio cues to manage prostate motion when the organ moves outside of the thresholds set by the radiation department.
The implanted Beacon® electromagnetic transponders work with the Calypso® 4D Localization SystemTM to provide guidance to the clinician on the position and movement of the prostate during radiotherapy. Clinicians use the motion data to guide radiation therapy setup and monitor the prostate position during treatment delivery.
The implanted Beacon® transponders and the Calypso System also provide objective guidance that enables the clinician to manage organ motion and the opportunity for expanded treatment delivery options. In addition, clinician confidence is enhanced through accurate sub-millimeter electromagnetic localization accuracy and additional non-ionizing radiation doses are not needed.
