The Importance of Targeting the Boost Dose

Hitting the Bull’s Eye

Your doctor will use the AccuBoost Applicators as part of an image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) technique which scientifically targets the radiation dose to the intended site. The real-time image guided procedure uses radiographic (mammographic) equipment to image and pinpoint the tissue that needs to be irradiated. Based on real-time images obtained, the AccuBoost Positioning Accessory will aid your doctor to position the applicator that delivers the therapeutic dose, accurately and reliably to irradiate the part of the breast that has been designated to receive the additional dose. This approach gives the radiation oncologist the needed confidence that “you see what you treat and you treat what you see”.
