RTsafe | 3Dprinting, Radiotherapy, Radiation Dosimetry
RTsafe is addressing the uncertainties of radiotherapy treatments for brain cancer patients. Besides killing the cancer cells, radiation may kill the surrounding healthy brain tissue, causing severe side effects and ineffective treatment. This problem results in slow ROI for the clinics’ SRS investments and significant losses for the reimbursement systems.
To resolve this problem, RTsafe simulates the Radiotherapy treatment on a 3D printed replica of each patient’s head, ready to detect the radiation effect, before applying it to the actual patient. So, the medical team can confirm or refine the treatment plan in a totally safe environment. The clinics boost the use of SRS investments achieving better financial results (reducing costs and increasing revenues). The Reimbursement systems save the side effects treatment cost (usually as high as the cancer treatment itself. As a result, the patients gain a better outcome. The physicians gain more confidence in their treatment plans.
