The Papillon+ is an effective but inexpensive addition to your radiotherapy department.
Low cost, Mobile, Treatment delivery system
The Papillon+ is a low cost, mobile x-ray treatment delivery system. Capable of delivering multiple treatment options, including rectal cancer ‘Papillon’, Intra-operative and superficial (skin cancer) applications.
‘Papillon’ Rectal Treatment
Based around an outpatient clinic set-up. The ‘Papillon’ treatment option offers reduced surgical and recovery (bed-time) costs when compared to other treatment techniques. Additionally, Papillon treatment can improve patient outcomes by avoiding a Stoma. As a result, nursing/care costs associated with an ongoing stoma can be reduced.
Patented X-ray tube technology can deliver up to 20 Gy/min with a 310° homogeneous beam ideally suited irradiation of surgical cavities (tumour bed). The Papillon+ system has been designed from the ground up to be cable-free and suitable for operation within the operating theatre.
Skin Cancer Treatments
Suitable for non-melanoma skin cancers. Our skin application is perfect for the ever-growing number of superficial cancer cases. We utilise an irregular field shielding technique to ensure quick treatment delivery without surgical costs. Consequently, this also frees up expensive LINAC and HDR-brachytherapy equipment time.
Our low-level shielding requirements, along with our Monitus remote door security and Prefectus on-board QA system, allow for safe room use without increased capital expenditure on treatment/operating room modifications.
