OC has installed Houston's first Bridge lap laser system as a freestanding facility! 🎉
We use the latest cutting-edge technology when simulating patients
A 4D CT scan allows visualization of the motion of the tumor and surrounding organs during the breathing cycle, which helps in the estimation of sufficient target margins for radiation treatment planning.
Deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH) is a radiation therapy technique where patients take a deep breath during treatment and hold this breath while the radiation is delivered. By taking a deep breath, your lungs fill with air and your heart will move away from your chest--GREAT FOR LEFT BREAST CANCER PATIENTS.
Name of the machine: GE Discovery RT for the CT simulations. This includes the 4D and Deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH)protocol use.
Name of the laser system: Bridge LAP laser system
