BEAMSCAN™

PTW Unveils Breakthrough New Water Phantom at ESTRO 35

BEAMSCAN™ is the world's first all-in-one water phantom featuring wireless auto setup and operation

TURIN, ITALY, ESTRO 35 - April 29, 2016 - PTW today announced the market launch of BEAMSCAN™, the first automated, wireless 3D water phantom, designed to save medical physicists hours of setup and scanning time during beam data collection and accelerator QA.
BEAMSCAN™ will be shown for the first time at the PTW booth (#6500) during the ESTRO 35 Congress in Turin, Italy, from
April 29 - May 3, 2016.

The automated BEAMSCAN™ represents a quantum leap ahead in technology and ease of use.
"Collecting beam data with a water phantom has always been a time-consuming task - even for the experienced medical physicist.
It requires much manual setup work, taking up machine time and manpower that could otherwise be used for patient treatment", said Bernd Allgaier, Head of Marketing and Product Management at PTW. "The market was in for a solution that speeds up the entire process - from setup to scanning - with no compromise on scanning quality or precision. The all-new BEAMSCAN™ perfectly responds to these needs."

Its all-in-one, all built-in design makes it ready for use "out of the box" - no tripping over cables in the treatment or control room. Leaving just one power cable to connect, BEAMSCAN™ offers by far the easiest and fastest installation in the industry.

Wireless auto setup and operation
As the first 3D water scanning system to automate setup and operation using wireless data transfer, BEAMSCAN™ reduces manual interaction to the touch or click of a single button. Its innovative "Wireless Auto Setup", which includes a unique patented three-point auto leveling function, uses advanced mathematical algorithms and computations rather than semi-automatic tools which require no screws, no tank shifts and no manual adjustments. An intuitive "Auto Setup Wizard", which is easily accessed from a smart device or PC guides users step by step through the entire setup process.

Faster scanning
"Every detail that makes operation faster and easier has been taken care of", said Jürgen Kiehne, PTW's Product Manager for BEAMSCAN™. "BEAMSCAN™ comes with a new built-in high-precision electrometer that delivers perfect scans much faster than ever before, saving medical physicists hours of scanning time."

"This water phantom is so quick to setup, so easy to use, so fast in scanning, it can even compete with "waterless" alternatives. One thing is sure - BEAMSCAN™ will raise the bar to a new level in 3D water scanning."
