LUER-20M

LINEAR ELECTRON ACCELERATOR FOR RADIOTHERAPY

Linac LUER-20M

The LUER-20M medical linear electron accelerator is isocentric megavoltage radiotherapy equipment intended for distant radiotherapy by photon and electron beams in both static and rotary modes.

The accelerator is recommended for use in specialized oncological clinics. It may be also used for research purposes in medicine and biology.

The LUER-20M may be used for treatment of not only oncological patients when it is completed with hardware environment complex for stereotactic radiotherapy of intracranial small size pathologic and small objects by photon narrow beam.

The irradiator and microwave generator are located in treatment room fitted with the radiation protection shielding and maze passage. The room must be about 50 m2 in area and at least 3.5 m. The rest of equipment is distributed over the rooms with the total area about 30 m2.

The accelerator is both manually and PC computer controlled. The control system provides the accelerator start-up, setting, control and monitoring of many parameters e.g. irradiation mode, electron energy, dose rate and total dose, gantry rotation angle and speed, gantry position, irradiation field size, etc.
