Saint Luke's Radiation Oncology Network: 3D Printed Bolus for Complex H&N Cases

The following patient case illustrates the application of our 3D printing software solution used in clinical radiation oncology to create a bolus for a VMAT H&N case which required bolus both over and under the patient’s immobilization device. This case is a great example of how Adaptiiv software can be effectively used in a clinical setting to create a customized bolus for complex situations where standard approaches would fall short.

3D render of both the bolus inside the immobilization mask (pink) and outside the immobilization mask (white).

Left: Planned bolus both inside and outside the treatment mask. The inside bolus was designed to fit within the cavity and immobilization resulting in good contact with the patient skin. Right: CBCT imaging showing the resultant fit on-treatment.
