EPIbeam: Automated, fast and independent pretreatment verification based on the EPID

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.

The solution is characterized by the use of Electronic Portal Imaging Device (EPID): which means that the pretreatment patient-specific beam control is performed under the treatment machine without phantom-based measurements. The reference image calculated by EPIbeam from the patient's treatment plan does not need TPS computation of hybrid plans.

EPIbeam is a standalone, independent and full-web software compatible with every linear accelerator equipped with an EPID. It is also fully compatible with all current treatment techniques: 3D-CRT, IMRT, VMAT and standard or FFF (Flattening Filter Free) beam fluence modes.

The Léon Bérard Center: An Elekta Reference Center
Equipped with Elekta Versa® and Synergy® treatment machines, the Léon Bérard Center has decided to perform automatic and systematic pretreatment quality controls with EPIbeam. EPIbeam interoperability with Elekta iViewGT™ 3.4.1 has been achieved and verified since 2018 under the framework of Elekta's Third Party Vendor Interoperability (VIP) Program. This validation optimizes and ensures the EPIbeam integration into the Radiotherapy clinical workflow.

"We are very proud to have been selected by the Léon Bérard Center, an important Elekta reference Center and one of the Unicancer French Comprehensive Cancer Centers (FCCC). The choice of the Léon Bérard Center demonstrates the clinical relevance of our new EPIbeam software solution, both CE marked and FDA cleared, and the value of a guaranteed interoperability with the Elekta EPID. It will help our international deployment in hospital centers equipped with Elekta treatment machines." comments Marc Uszynski, DOSIsoft CEO.
