BSD-500 Superficial Hyperthermia

a versatile, fully self-contained treatment system in a mobile configuration
or maximum treatment flexibility of superficial tumors within 1” of skin surface

  • 24” Medical Grade Touch Screen Monitor

    High resolution monitor providing easy access to user control systems for improved patient monitoring and system control.
  • 8-port Temperature Monitoring

    Track up to 8 independent temperature probes for accurate thermal dosing. An integrated temperature well ensures easy and accurate temperature calibration.
  • 5-Point Pneumatic Applicator Arm

    Provides rock-steady placement of Hyper- thermia applicators at any angle with a total reach of 41”.
  • MA-151 Wave Guide Applicator

    MA-151: mini-dual ridge wave guide applicators have an aperture of 4 x 5 cm and individual heating patterns approximately 2.5 x 2.5 cm by 2 cm deep. Advanced annular phased array principles create a central focusing of energy, which significantly overcomes the penetration losses of the energy radiated into the body.
  • MA-100 Wave Guide Applicator

    MA-100: side loaded wave guide applicators have a 10 x 13 cm aperture and a heating pattern approximately 8 x 10 cm by 2.5 cm deep.
  • Wave Guide Applicator

    MA-120: side-loaded wave guide applicator has an 18 x 24 cm aperture and a heating pattern of approxi- mately 12.5 x 19.5 cm by 2.5 cm deep.
  • Probe Calibration

    The Thermal Calibration Well can be used to quickly verify probe accuracy prior to treatment
  • Brachytherapy Treatment Support

    Interstitial hyperthermia delivers heat directly to the site of the tumor via brachytherapy catheter. The microwave power delivered to the antennas (available as an optional kit) can be adjusted in amplitude and phase to conform the heating pattern to the tumor.
  • The BSD-500 offers two USB ports for the offloading of patient records and keyboard/mouse. The system includes a wireless color printer. (model subject to change)
  • Water Circulation System

    Provides constant volume water supply to the Applicator Bolus with temperature range of 5 ̊C to 45 ̊C.
  • 915 MHz Eight-Channel Power Amplifier

    915 MHz Eight-Channel Power Amplifier Multi-channel solid state amplifier producing an available 480 Watts of RF power, (60 watts per channel) independently adjustable phase and amplitude.
  • Interchangeable Superficial Applicators

    Applicators available in multiple configurations to treat a range of tumor sizes and locations. Base model includes the MA-100 wave guide as shown.
  • MA-251 Microwave Interstitial Antenna

    The semi-rigid MA-251 microwave interstitial applicators can be inserted into 15.5 gauge (5 French) radiation implant catheters. The heat- ing pattern is ellipsoidal and approximately 4.5 cm in length along the applicator shaft with heating to the applicator tip.
  • BSD-500 Features

    • Portable
    • No shielding room needed
    • FDA Approved for palliative
      treatment of certain tumors
    • Delivers both superficial and
      interstitial hyperthermia

Treatment Planning Software

Performing interstitial hyperthermia requires the use for the BSD-500 built-in treatment planning program. Using this software, the size and shape of the tumor can be traced on a grid on the computers screen. Treatment plans can ten be made by simulating the placement of antennae in and around the tumor. The power and phase of each channel can be set and adjusted on the screen. Each change in placement, power or phase will display the new simulated heating pattern.  Watch Demo
