Clinical concerns answered by C-Qual breastboard

Clinical concern: Breast, head and neck and lung treatments require multiple, unique positioning devices

C-Qual breastboard solution:

Using the C-Qual breastboard Sure-Set angulation (from 5 to 25), breast, head and neck and lung set-ups are achievable

Clinical concern: Positioning comfort during gantry pass through and interference in the superclavicular region

C-Qual breastboard solution:

Patient focused arm supports allow easy gantry pass through and lateral displacement prevents intrusion into the superclavicular region

Clinical concern: Artifacting and uneven attenuation in scanning and radiotherapy treatment fields

C-Qual breastboard solution:

The C-Qual breastboard's zero tolerance to artifacting materials in the scanning and treatment fields and homogenous construction make it your response to IGRT

Clinical concern: Patient movement during radiotherapy treatment and lumbar stress

C-Qual breastboard solution:

Enhanced bottom-stop reduces patient slide and the C-Qual breastboard's slope alleviates lumbar pressure

Clinical concern: Protracted and elaborate breastboard set-ups couple with limited reproducibility

C-Qual breastboard solution:

The C-Qual breastboard is indexable with a two-pin Lok-Bar for increased patient throughput with strong, consistent set-ups
