One of the challenges faced in high workload hospitals is keeping procedures safe while meeting the high demands of a heavy workload. Some of these hospitals keep the practice of plan verification, a safety check, in place to ensure that treatments are delivered accurately. This procedure checks plan isocenter prior to treatment. While this ensures the plan isocenter is correct, it is an additional step that sometimes increases the number of trips to the hospital for patients. This procedure also further increases the workload of the hospital.
Sun Yat-Sen University Cancer Center aims to safely eliminate this process with the help of AlignRT, starting with breast cancer patients.
