LAP webinar2Different workflows and solutions will be elaborated on while questioning if lasers still make the difference in patient alignment. The need for a fluent process in treatment units will be discussed and how this requirement can be implemented.

The presenters guide through solutions of the leading manufacturer of laser systems for patient alignment and explain supported workflows for an optimal use and integration in clinical routine.

This webinar presented by Raphael Schmidt and Michael Uhr will discuss:

  • The advantages of using lasers for patient positioning in RT and how precise laser systems enhance safety for patient alignment, and therefore gain more time for treatment.
  • An overview of the current laser system portfolio from LAP including integrated workflow solutions and installation options.
