SenoView Prone Breast System
The Aktina SenoView solves many of the current problems with standard prone breast boards. The unique patented design orients the patient in a semi-decubitus position resting on an adjustable sternum bridge, allowing the treatment field edges to be viewed and marked for both the medial and lateral fields. This is a significant advantage over standard prone breast boards, where the medial field cannot be visualized on the patient's skin for field edge marking and verification.
Sub-mm Patient Adjustments
The SenoView represents a breakthrough for prone breast treatments. The patented angulation mechanism allows the therapist to easily reproduce the patient's exact setup with sub-millimeter motorized thorax pitch and roll corrections.
Simple and Easy to Use
The SenoView system consists of three modular light-weight components which interlock with each other within seconds and can be easily indexed to the treatment couch. A wall docking station is available to safely store the components when not in use.
Patient comfort is critical to the success of SenoView treatments. The contralateral breast is never compressed (unlike standard prone breast boards). Since the patient is rotated, the opposite breast is simply supported out of the field with a breast cup or an elastic support bra. The treatment-side arm is never over extended, but instead is rested at a level below the head with customizable cushions. The opposite arm is oriented along the hips of the patient, so as not to interfere with any treatment fields or visibility of the field edges. With the SenoView system, the patient can relax and not feel unbalanced or stressed.
The SenoView System was co-developed with Andrew J. Tamas, the Chief Radiation Therapist at Union State Bank Cancer Center. To learn more about the history of the SenoView System, please visit the SenoView press release here.
