A Patient Positioning Laser for the Lazy
Do you remember what watching TV was like before the invention of the remote control? Having to get up every time you needed to change the channel? Having to sit through all the boring commercials? And fighting with your friends or family members to decide who would be next to have to get up and change the channel?
That wonderful remote control allowed us to become lazy—in a good way, of course. We could remain stretched out on that comfortable couch without having to get up every time our show came on another network. The remote control removed a menial task through innovation, and in the process, it improved our enjoyment of television and gave us more free time.
At CYRPA, we believe in helping the lazy. And those that want to be more efficient. And those that want to be more productive.
Call us lazy, or call us innovative, but that is why we invented the world’s first auto-calibrating patient positioning laser for use in radiation oncology.
A recent survey conducted by Radiology Oncology Systems shows that the majority of physicists spend less than an hour calibrating lasers, whether in the linear accelerator room or the CT Simulator room. An elite few spend over an hour, some even over two hours, to make sure the calibrations are perfect.
CYRPA lasers were designed for these few. They are working too hard, and deserve to be lazy, like the rest of us. Like the remote control, our auto-calibration was built to the goal of automating a menial task to save you time.
Now, you can sit back and relax and sip your coffee or tea while the SmartPhantom® takes care of the work. Using a wireless connection, this unique tool calibrates all the laser lines so that you don’t have to, allowing you better, more precise patient positioning while also saving you time.
CYRPA lasers are used around the world in linac rooms housing Varian, Elekta, Siemens linear accelerators, as well as Cyberknife systems. They are also used in CT rooms housing Siemens, Philips, GE, and Toshiba CT Simulators. CYRPA lasers are also used in proton facilities where complex room designs with multi isocenters require customized patient positioning laser solutions.
