AlignRT® is an innovative technology which increases treatment accuracy and patient comfort during radiation therapy.
Head and Neck cancer treatments traditionally have relied on claustrophobic and uncomfortable closed masks to set up and keep patients in the correct position during radiation therapy. Studies show that patients find the use of closed face masks to be one of their worst experiences during Radiation Therapy¹, with nearly half (43%) reporting “clinically significant anxiety” before their mask-making session².
With its sub-millimetric accuracy, plus its ability to stop the radiation beam if a patient moves out of position, AlignRT is the only surface guided radiation technology that enables treatments with open-faced masks.
Open-faced masks have been proven as effective as closed-faced masks and have been shown to be preferred by most patients.1. They are made of the same material and manufactured in the same manner as closed masks, but the nose, eyes, parts of the forehead, and cheekbones are left open.
