The kVue™ is a state-of-the-art radiotherapy couch top that is optimized for the most recent advances in treatment and imaging technology. Qfix® Couch Top Systems provide a series of options to allow you to seamlessly guide your patient from SIMULATION through TREATMENT.
kVue™ CT Overlays
kVue™ CT Overlays provide a method of accounting for the dosimetric properties of the kVue™ Couch Tops by enabling CT imaging of the treatment specific kVue™ insert and immobilization accessories to seamlessly support the simulation and treatment planning process. This is due to the fact that the kVue™ CT Overlays and kVue™ Couch Tops use inserts that have the same dosimetric properties. The kVue™ platform is designed to adhere to the guidelines set forth in AAPM TG176 and therefore increases the potential for more accurate dose planning and delivery.
QUANTUM™ CT Overlays
QUANTUM CT Overlays create a flat, indexed surface ready for RT simulation. They are thin and lightweight, varying from 7 - 15 kg depending on the model. Varian Exact® Indexing comes standard.
At just 51.4 cm (20.25 in) wide and 1.6 cm (5/8 in) thick, the QUANTUM™ CT Overlay is both narrower and thinner than most other indexed CT overlays. This ultrathin profile increases the usable bore space.
Other CT Compatible Devices and Accessories
Qfix’s comprehensive portfolio of CT compatible treatment devices support radiation therapy planning to fit the specific needs of your RT department. Our devices enable excellent image quality to support accurate treatment planning.
Encompass™ SRS Immobilization System
The Encompass™ SRS Immobilization System is a highly rigid, non-invasive immobilization device designed for precisely targeted treatment to the brain and head & neck.
The implementation of MR to radiation therapy is driven by the enhanced soft tissue contrast MRI offers for treatment planning when compared with images acquired with CT scanners. MRI offers excellent soft-tissue contrast without dose, making it ideal for tumor definition, visualization of lesions, and target delineation compared with CT planning alone.
Qfix® is the inventor of Aquaplast RT™, an easy to use, rigid thermoplastic with minimal shrinkage. All thermoplastics are manufactured in-house and have been for the past 40 years to ensure customers receive the most reliable products on the market.
Premium thermoplastic which combines world renowned Aquaplast RT™ with Kevlar®. Fibreplast® is 1.5 times more rigid than Aquaplast RT™ and has less shrinkage, resulting in greater patient comfort.
Symphony - Patient Transfer Solution
Position your patient once and go from one modality to the next without having to perform additional setups.
A Symphony solution combines an AirShuttle positioning & transfer device with an AirDrive system to provide smooth patient transfers for imaging and treatment applications. AirShuttles and AirDrives can be used in imaging modalities including CT, X-Ray, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, MRI (up to 3 Tesla), and radiation therapy treatment environments including brachytherapy.
- Safely transfer your patient with minimal clinical staff
- Transfer on and off a wide variety of surfaces including sheet-covered pads and mattresses • Patient positioning can include immobilization, where required
- Suitable for use in MRI
