Xstrahl 150

The Xstrahl 150 X-ray system has an adaptable energy range, delivering impressive cosmetic results for superficial skin cancers. The variable energy range of the Xstrahl 150 means that superficial lesions can be successfully treated; from basal cell carcinoma, keloid scars and dermatological conditions such as psoriasis to other benign plaques.

Thanks to its leading design, treatment using the Xstrahl 150 provides an all-round positive experience for every patient. The flexibility of the unit means that the treatment is less stressful from the outset and thanks to its unique design the treatment is pain-free, with no surgical scarring. The low energy means pinpoint accuracy, so healthy skin isn’t affected. The fast treatment means a large reduction in time and impact on the patient’s day-to-day life, whilst providing a highly effective treatment for superficial skin conditions.

The Xstrahl 150 can be floor or ceiling mounted, making it easy to install alongside other equipment and adaptable where space is restricted. The intuitive machine controls have been ergonomically designed to provide the operator with smooth, controlled movements at all times allowing the radiation therapist to easily position the unit  and smooth adjustment and easy set up for each treatment field, ensuring patient comfort wherever the treatment site.

The unit’s small footprint enables installation in a compact space, and its mobility makes for better use of space within the treatment room. Its low energy and short exposure times means the treatment room requires less shielding compared to a high energy linear accelerator.
The range of movement in the treatment arm enables smooth adjustment and easy set up for each treatment field. Its flexibility makes it particularly suited for treating lesions that are difficult to access, such as the head and neck; and without compromising patient comfort.

Its has been designed to provide a comprehensive yet simple workflow for the creation and treatment of your patients. X-ray therapy is utilised for a wide range of clinical conditions, each with a unique patient prescription and treatment position, the ability to link images to each treatment field provides a clinical record of the delivered exposure. For patients with multiple fields Concerto provides a simple and easy method to recall and create new treatment fields.

Fisica, the interface between the physicist and the system hardware, is a highly customizable password controlled user level application that enables configuration of the Xstrahl system.

Applicators

Accurate application ensures that healthy skin isn’t affected, the treatment is pain-free, and speed of treatment means less impact on the patient’s day-to-day life. And with no surgical scarring, the cosmetic results are excellent.

The Xstrahl 150 is supplied with eight open-ended clinical applicators of 15 cm and 25 cm FSD.

Xstrahl is devoted to ensuring you have the best applicators for your needs, and so we offer bespoke applicator creation on request, additional standardized applicators, focal spot applicators, and our new range of oval applicators, designed to be used between the boundary of the lip and facial skin.

The applicators are interlocked in the head of the treatment machine, ensuring any exposure may only be delivered with the correct applicator attached. The applicators are manufactured from stainless steel and have clear Perspex® viewing ends, which allow the radiographers to accurately position the applicator to achieve skin apposition prior to treatment.
