Use of the Stereotactic Technique for the Body:
The concept of three-dimensional localization (stereotactic localization) can be defined as a coordinate system which allows one to describe the location of any point with respect to another known point (origin). These concepts are fundamental to the principles of stereotactic localization.
Historically, a number of methods have been used for patient immobilization during radiation therapy. More recently the concept of stereotactic localization, which has previously been successfully applied to radiotherapy / radiosurgery of the brain, has been applied to extracranial radiotherapy target areas.
The BodyLoc System™ provides repeat fixation with accurate Stereotactic Localization.
