Installation and Downtime for KV Systems

Minimal Downtime Installation

Theraview understands that keeping your linear accelerator operational and avoiding downtime is essential. We provide a minimal downtime installation that only requires missing one treatment day.

A typical installation is scheduled as follows:

  • Thursday Evening - TheraView engineers arrive Thursday evening after the last scheduled patient is treated to commence the installation.
  • Friday - Linear accelerator is down while KV arm and head are mounted to system.
  • Saturday - KV arm mounting continues.
  • Sunday - KV arm mounting continues. After arm and head assembly are mounted the linear accelerator is restored to clinical operation for treatment on Monday.
  • Monday - Friday - TheraView technicians will work after treatment hours to finalize system calibrations.
  • Monday - Friday - Tuesday (Week 2) – Two days of onsite clinical applications.
