BreastSTEP™

The BreastSTEP™ guarantees high comfort and facile positioning, assuring a reproducible patient position throughout the total course of treatment.

The BreastSTEP is designed to improve the accuracy of radiation therapy for the breast, thorax and upper abdomen areas in a patient friendly and non-invasive manner.

The BreastSTEP consists of a base plate and an upper plate made of a low-density foam core covered with thin layers of carbon fiber. It allows the beam to pass through the BreastSTEP from any angle with minimal attenuation.
