Trilogy™ is a new, state-of-the-art radiation therapy that treats cancer conditions more quickly and with unprecedented precision, reduces treatment times and side effects, and improves outcomes. The Trilogy system's linear accelerator rotates around the patient to precisely target tumors from nearly any angle and reduces radiation exposure to healthy tissues. The system shapes the radiation beam to match the three-dimensional form of the tumor and an On-Board Imager™ device delivers real-time tumor tracking and automated patient positioning.
A set of optical guidance cameras monitor and correct for a patient’s slight movements on the treatment table. Trilogy even adjusts to the subtle motion of breathing. An infrared monitoring device turns the radiation beam on and off during treatment to compensate for respiratory motion. This feature is especially useful for treating lung cancer, but it is also effective on several other types of cancer as well.
