Simple Bolus

Improve treatment accuracy and comply with regulatory bodies

Our Simple Bolus software module allows users to confidently create patient-specific accessories that significantly reduce air gaps, spare healthy tissue, and provide superior dose distribution compared to traditional methods. Our regulatory cleared software converts DICOM data from a patient CT scan into a digital model which can be printed, no matter the size or complexity.

Key Benefits

Full integration with existing treatment planning systems (TPS) and clinical workflows enables users to create patient-specific bolus on demand. We provide the only turnkey 3D printing software solution backed by a regulatory cleared QMS.
Our Simple Bolus solution provides the following benefits:

    • Patient-specific fit reduces air gaps and surface dose uncertainty compared to traditional sheet bolus, effectively improving treatment accuracy.
    • The only regulated solution that allows users to customize a bolus, export the modified structure back into their TPS, and use the TPS to calculate dose.
    • Eliminate the need for multiple, 3rd party software solutions that require excessive design time, can’t be easily verified in your TPS, and do not have regulatory clearance.
    • Confidence that what is planned in the TPS will result in a printed accessory that follows strict QA requirements used in radiation therapy.
    • Adaptiiv software includes numerous post-processing features to ensure an optimal and accurate bolus design:
        • Smoothing: Allows for a better fit and patient comfort.
        • Cropping: Improves printing success by creating a flat area for adhesion to the print bed.
        • Patient ID: A patient identifier label can be printed directly onto the bolus.
        • Cleaving: Cleave a bolus into two parts (at any angle) to treat complex patient anatomies, such as large extremities.
        • In Vivo Dosimetry: Create and print dosimeter pockets directly within a bolus, enabling real-time recording of dose received by individual patients.

3D Printed Moulds

We now offer an innovative and superior method to create flexible, patient-specific bolus. By listening to customer feedback, we provide a solution that allows users to easily create moulds that can be 3D printed and filled with flexible material to produce patient-specific bolus.

What People Are Saying

Happy Customers

An individual was already 2 weeks into their treatment plan and the clinic was struggling with the time required to fabricate the device using standard sheet bolus. Since the patient was already undergoing treatment, we wanted to make the bolus as fast as possible. Using Adaptiiv’s software solution we were able to print the entire bolus overnight, ensuring it was ready for the next day’s treatment.
