Valencia Applicator Set
The Valencia Applicator design allows for non-invasive brachytherapy of skin cancer, which can be performed in a few fractions with high dose rate Ir-192 sources. The tungsten-shielded applicator provides a flat dose profile to the skin to provide a more uniform dose to the target area. Thanks to a special skin dose prescription feature in the treatment planning system SagiPlan®, dwell times are automatically determined based on the prescribed dose and depth. The integrated support of the Valencia Applicator enables to plan, treat and report in one system without the need for extra calculations in proprietary calculation tools. SagiPlan® gives the user the ability to evaluate and control dose distribution through ultrasound image overlay.
