The university's Comprehensive Cancer Center in Sacramento added the scanner to its brachytherapy suite. Having the scanner there eliminates the need to transfer patients to a CT simulator room, reducing risks associated with moving patients such as displacing brachytherapy applicators, the company said.
BodyTom features an 85-cm gantry and a 60-cm field-of-view. When used for radiation oncology, the scanner can help medical physicists and radiation oncologists map out a course of treatment at the point of care, Samsung said.
