BEAMSCAN™ combines speed and precision. With its automated setup and faster scanning speeds, BEAMSCAN™ cuts commissioning time in half.
True all-in-one, ready-to-use solutionWith all electronics and cables directly built into the system and just one power cable to connect, the all-in-one BEAMSCAN™ reduces installation time to a minimum.
Simply align it to the LINAC and plug in the power cable. Done.
Ready to scan in a few minutesBEAMSCAN™ comes with a fully automated setup, saving much time and helping prevent typical setup errors.
The interactive BEAMSCAN™ Wizard, which can be easily accessed using the included iPod touch® or your own mobile device, guides you through the system setup in the treatment room – touch by touch, in a fraction of time. No tools, and no manual adjustments required.
Virtual tank leveling:
BEAMSCAN™ uses a unique patented, fully automatic virtual tank leveling that helps eliminate typical error
sources in tank alignment.
Faster, easier, less error-prone
Based on a three-point measurement and advanced mathematical calculations, TRULEVEL aligns the scanning axes virtually to the water surface without physically moving the tank or scanning arms. No leveling tools and no tank shifts required.
Easiest detector installation with patented clip-in TRUFIX®The new clip-in TRUFIX detector positioning system, makes it easier than ever to precisely align a detector both vertically and horizontally in a BEAMSCAN™ water phantom or quickly exchange it without realignment.
Simply select the appropriate detector holder for axial or radial irradiation, clip it onto the TRUFIX base, then insert your detector, and ready you are.
Perfect scans at maximum speedWith enhanced mechanics and a new built-in state-of-the-art electrometer which is capable of speeds of up to 20 mm/s, BEAMSCAN™ delivers pinpoint accurate scans in half the time – every time you use it.
True Wi-Fi connectivityBEAMSCAN™ is equipped with an intelligent web server to offer hassle-free wireless operation. No need to install data cables every time you use it.
Simply access the built-in BEAMSCAN™ web server through your own mobile device or PC and complete your auto setup or perform your measurement tasks – faster and easier than ever before.
Innovation down to the smallest detailFrom wave prevention to evaporation control, from click-fix SSD adjustment to auto field alignment, BEAMSCAN™ features many practical improvements and well thought-out details to make your work much easier.
With its inclined tank bottom and a large water hose, which allow for complete draining, BEAMSCAN™ is as easy to remove and store as it is to install.
BEAMSCAN™ Auto Setup
Ready to scan in a few minutes
Forget time-consuming setup procedures. BEAMSCAN™ software comes with an intelligent Auto Setup allowing you to complete the setup steps easily that require radiation.
The Auto Setup will launch automatically upon start of the software, check-marking the setup routines that have already been performed in the treatment room.
As with BEAMSCAN™ Wizard in the treatment room, the software-based Auto Setup guides you step by step through the system setup in the control room, requiring no manual adjustments or calculations.
Simply start the Auto Setup program from your PC, and let BEAMSCAN™ software do the rest.Learn how easy it is to set up BEAMSCAN™.
