Pioneer delivers high quality advanced treatments for patients, with flexibility in its location, improving equitable access to radiotherapy. With rapid installation and commissioning times, Pioneer is fast and easy to install, delivering radiotherapy treatments less than two months after it’s positioned on site.
Pioneer radiotherapy treatment suite
Pioneer is a stand-alone suite that communicates with existing hospital systems such as PACS. The suite includes an area where therapists can plan cancer treatment and changing areas for patients. The Pioneer treatment suite is housed in a custom-built vehicle. At site, the sides of the suite move out, making the unit spacious and comfortable. The suite is installed on a pre-built concrete pad with access to utilities. An additional radiation shield is then constructed to meet local requirements. Finally an exterior façade can be assembled to create an attractive environment for patients.
A relocatable radiotherapy treatment suite using the TomoTherapy machine has been in operation in the US for two years, delivering state of the art cancer care to all. Oncology Systems Limited partnered with a UK engineering company to develop this solution that meets UK and European transport law requirements and provides the most efficient solution for public and private sector hospitals. OSL’s clinical expertise also offers the option of a remote outlining, treatment planning and QA service, OSL Remote.
