ARTISTE Solution Provides Comprehensive Portfolio of Tools

ARTISTE Solution is a linear accelerator that provides a comprehensive portfolio of image-guided and advanced treatment delivery tools, enabling clinicians to choose the appropriate radiation therapy treatment technique for each patient, make critical adjustments instantly and deliver Adaptive Radiation Therapy (ART) according to each patient’s needs.

The technological flexibility of Siemens linear accelerator systems enables large and small clinics throughout the world to treat patients with greater precision and confidence. Clinicians can select the optimal Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) application for the preferred treatment approach, such as 3D megavoltage cone beam imaging (MVision) and In-room CT – diagnostic CT imaging in the treatment room (CTVision).

With a small, 5 mm leaf thickness over the full field, 160 MLC Multileaf Collimator provides better conformity to the actual tumor shape for homogeneous dose coverage independent of tumor size. 160 MLC’s high leaf speed and extremely low leakage optimize treatment delivery by reducing patient on-table time and dose to normal tissue.
