Royal North Shore Hospital: 3D Printed Brachytherapy Scalp Vertex

The following patient case demonstrates the clinical application of our 3D printing software solution used in radiation oncology through the creation of a 3D printed high dose rate (HDR) surface brachytherapy mould of the scalp. This case is a great example of how Royal North Shore Hospital used Adaptiiv software to effectively design and create a surface mould structure for brachytherapy treatment.

Catheter tunnel trajectories with small curvature radius can be smoothed or straightened by a simple point-and-click function in Adaptiiv’s software.

Catheter tunnel trajectories can be checked in Adaptiiv software for equivalence to plan generated in TPS and amended if required.
