The ARTISTE, a high-precision radiation therapy machine, is ideally suited for Image-Guided Radiation Therapy
(IGRT), which improves targeting of the radiation beam and reduces risk to nearby tissue. The system allows us to custom-design each patient's treatment for optimal care. The Siemens syngo® RT Therapist operating system integrates imaging with treatment delivery to provide fast and accurate radiation delivery, and the Siemens open design and large patient clearance provide a comfortable environment.
The ARTISTE is equipped with the world's most advanced megavoltage 3D imaging system for guiding patient positioning in complex cases.
The ARTISTE provides a precisely sculpted 3D radiation dose for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).
Several new techniques were developed at UCSF on the Artiste, including total-body irradiation (TBI) and emergency radiation treatment using on-board imaging.
