Breast Cancer Clinical Process

Treatment of breast cancer with the Papillon Plus

Local excision of the tumour (lumpectomy)

Insert and correctly position the “Nice Breast Applicator™”

Position the applicator, guided by direct vision,
having selected the size that fits the cavity.

Spherical applicators are available in sizes
25 to 50mm diameter.

The applicator position is locked

An articulated arm supports the applicator,
ensuring its position is maintained
throughout the treatment.

Sterile and radiation protection barriers are
fitted over the support arm and patient.

Connect the Micronode™ X-ray generator and deliver 20Gy

The
transmission anode
of the X-ray tube is
automatically located at the centre of the spherical
applicator to ensure homogenous irradiation of the
excised cavity wall.
