- US-based radiotherapy patient positioning device specialist Qfix has launched Portrait S-Frame with Integrated Shim System for head and neck radiotherapy treatment, the company said.

The Portrait S-Frame with Integrated Shim System is an immobilisation system designed to be used in conjunction with S-Type devices allowing the clinician to quickly and effortlessly adjust shim height at independent points, resulting in effective, efficient and highly customised treatments.

According to the company, the Portrait S-Frame with Integrated Shim System builds upon Qfix's existing technologies by incorporating an innovative shimming feature which provides a 4 mm range of height adjustment utilizing discrete 0.5 mm increments.

The Portrait S-Frame with Integrated Shim includes the optional IntegraBite, which conforms to the teeth or maxilla further decreasing head and neck rotation, flexion and extension.

It provides a new way to maximize the patient positioning performance of your devices.
