This robot has key advantages in optimized safety for both patients and radiotherapy staff, while also designed to improve the throughput of patients, thereby increasing the IBA cancer center’s efficiency. Additionally, the Leoni Orion System makes automated positioning adjustments possible in six degrees of freedom, to optimize the tumor’s location under the precise IBA proton treatment beam. The Leoni Orion System is integrated both with IBA’s compact single-room Proteus ONE and with IBA’s multi-room Proteus PLUS proton therapy solutions.
Intuition and innovation in software and hardware
The Leoni Orion System is fully designed to fulfil medical needs, combining an intuitive software solution with innovative hardware components, thus creating an unprecedented new standard in radiotherapy treatment. It provides multiple benefits, all targeting quick and precise treatment: the system offers several features to decrease the per patient treatment cycle time, such as the possibility of preparing the patient outside the treatment room.
It provides a dynamic positioning control in six degrees of freedom with sub-millimetre accuracy. Moreover, it features a high patient weight capacity in a large treatment volume. In addition, it installs quickly and easily in new and existing radiotherapy centres. Finally, it is flexible and easy to use, which allows clinical staffs to provide the greatest level of patient care.
How proton therapy improves patient’s quality of life
Proton therapy is a highly precise, targeted cancer radiotherapy treatment. Compared to photons, protons deposit the majority of their effective energy within a precisely controlled range, directly within the tumor, sparing healthy surrounding tissue. This technique offers cancer centers the opportunity to develop new protocols delivering higher doses to the tumor aiming at improved outcome for risk of side-effects, or keeping the same dose but targeting improved patient’s quality of life.
