QUASAR Programmable Respiratory Motion Phantom Apr 25, 2012

The QUASAR™ Programmable Respiratory Motion Phantom simulates patient breathing for accuracy in gated radiation therapy.

The QUASAR™ Programmable Respiratory Motion Phantom is a state-of-the-art breathing simulator for conducting quality assurance testing on radiotherapy systems.

Used for regularly scheduled testing, as well as commissioning new systems and upgrades, and testing repairs, the Respiratory Motion Phantom is designed to move cylindrical inserts in the superior/inferior direction within a body shaped oval with both varying speed and amplitude. Several different moving inserts are available for a variety of applications.

Insert motion is linked to a moving Chest Wall Platform designed to carry a respiratory tracking device. The Respiratory Motion Phantom works with different therapy delivery systems and is compatible with kV and MV CT imagers.
