Cone Beam CT imaging with In-Line kView

In-Line kView Imaging is Siemens’ unique Cone Beam CT imaging solution and is available as upgrade for your ARTISTE and ONCOR K-class. It uses an optimized beam of the linac for imaging, offering kV-like images and low-dose imaging. In-Line kView provides the image quality you need to verify the accurate patient position – for fast and precise IGRT.

Features & Benefits

Convincing image quality with a patient friendly concept
In-Line kView provides just the image quality you need for Image-Guided Radiation Therapy. It uses the treatment beam for imaging. Thus, it requires no additional imaging equipment, making it a reliable, cost-efficient and patient-friendly solution. With In-Line kView, you can make IGRT your daily routine.
 

The image quality you need for IGRT

The image quality you need for IGRT

In-Line kView provides kV-like images with high 2D (ARTISTE Solution only) and 3D soft-tissue contrast. It gives you just the image quality you need to verify patient positioning right before treatment. So you can precisely adapt it to any anatomical changes. 

  • Depicting soft tissue at low dose with kV-like image quality – making IGRT your daily routine.

 

A detector, designed for precise patient positioning
 

A detector, designed for precise patient positioning
The OPTIVUE flat panel detector is the core component of the patient positioning system. It enables superior soft-tissue contrast and faster frame readout. The detector automatically moves into acquisition position – simplifying your workflow. 

  • Enhancing your images, decreasing patient on-table time, increasing efficiency and accuracy.

 

A patient-friendly imaging concept

A patient-friendly imaging concept
In-Line kView needs no additional imaging equipment at the linac This drastically increases patient comfort, as patients do not feel crowded in. And, you can select between maximum image quality and minimum dose, according to a patient’s needs.

  • Less dose, open design, more patient confidence – increasing the attractiveness of your institution.

 

A clear, direct view – with Siemens In-Line concept<br /><br />

A clear, direct view – with Siemens In-Line concept
Siemens’ unique In-Line Technology uses the treatment beam for pretreatment imaging. As a result, you have only one isocenter. This provides an in-line view on the tumor and its surrounding area and a direct view on the field form.

  • One source, one beam, one detector

 

Create economic value – with In-Line kView

Create economic value – with In-Line kView
With In-Line kView, you receive a robust, cost-efficient and reliable imaging solution. As it is completely integrated into the Siemens linac, it requires no additional processes and no extra maintenance.

  • No investment in additional imaging equipment, less effort for maintenance and quality management.
Technical Specifications

The imaging beam compared to the treatment beam
Generally, a beam contains photons with a wide range of different energies from kV to MV. The kV spectrum is optimal for imaging, while the MV spectrum is mainly used for treatment. The proportion of kV photons depends on the target – and increases if the target material has a low Z number.

Treatment Beam Imaging Beam

Treatment beam - with flattening filter

  • For treatment, a flattening filter is often used to achieve uniform dose across the field.
  • The flattening filter absorbs low energy photons, which are essential for high contrast images.

Imaging beam – without flattening filter

  • Removing the flattening filter allows to utilize the low energy components in the beam.
  • A special carbon target further shifts the energy spectrum towards the kV range.
  • The kV range is more suitable for imaging and improves the soft tissue contrast.

High dose rate with Multiple-X

The optional Multiple-X feature enables the ARTISTE linear accelerator to deliver high dose rates of up to 2,000 MU/min – offering up to four selectable flattening-filter-free beams plus a flat one. As a result, the high dose necessary for hypofractionation can be delivered in much shorter time, drastically speeding up stereotaxy and IMRT.

Features & Benefits

Faster treatment, more flexibility, more confidence
With its high dose rate, the optional Multiple-X feature significantly speeds up SRT and IMRT – drastically reducing patient-on-table time and increasing patient confidence. The selectable energies provide great application flexibility, whether SRT, IMRT or 3D-CRT. Find out more about the benefits of Multiple-X below.

High dose rates, faster treatment<br />

High dose rates, faster treatment
With the Multiple-X feature, ARTISTE linear accelerator provides a powerful dose rate of 2,000 MU/min, available at four different energies. Multiple-X allows you to deliver typical 20 Gy sessions in 10 minutes or less. 

  • Reduce patient-on-table time up to factor 6, compared to traditional delivery techniques 
Multiple-X offers up to four flattening-filter-free energies

High dose rates, faster treatment
With the Multiple-X feature, ARTISTE linear accelerator provides a powerful dose rate of 2,000 MU/min, available at four different energies. Multiple-X allows you to deliver typical 20 Gy sessions in 10 minutes or less. 

  • Reduce patient-on-table time up to factor 6, compared to traditional delivery techniques 
Application flexibility: Deliver SRT, IMRT, and 3D-CRT

Application flexibility: Deliver SRT, IMRT, and 3D-CRT
Multiple-X offers great application flexibility. On the one hand, you can address the demanding needs of hypo-fractionated radiotherapy (SRS, SBRT). On the other hand, you can perform fast IMRT even for everyday cases and deliver 3D-CRT. 

  • Perform a multitude of applications with one delivery system: your ARTISTE

 

Less risk of patient motion<br /><br />

Less risk of patient motion
Natural motion caused by coughing, swallowing or breathing can change the target position slightly but dangerously. A fast Multiple-X treatment reduces the risk of patient motion, as preventing unwanted movements is easier in 10 minutes than in 60. 

  • Faster treatment, easier motion management – also very beneficial for gating

 

More patient comfort and safety

More patient comfort and safety
For your patients, a shorter treatment time is more comfortable and safe. At the same time, your institution can benefit from significantly higher patient throughput for greater economic success. Thanks to Multiple-X. 

  • Higher patient confidence, higher throughput, higher efficiency
