“We could not reach the Level of accuracy required for SBRT patients without using our Protura system. It is especially important in stereotactic treatments,
where the highest Level of positional accuracy is needed due to tight margins and proximity of critical structures. Because of the ability to make rotational
adjustments in patient positioning, the system allows for treatment of more than one Lesion simultaneously, which is easier for the patient as well.”
