    The prone breast system is mainly designed to reduce irradiation to the chest wall, healthy cardiac tissue and lungs, and spares the vital organs with extra patient comfort and maximum treatment outcome during a course of external beam radiation therapy. The radiation dose is more evenly distributed in the breast, lessening the chance of painful scar tissue forming. Prone positioning on the system with opening bridge provides an unobstructed lateral field for pendulous breast tissues and assists to acquire optimum angle during radiation therapy for breast cancer. The system allows for even weight distribution and two profiles (13cm and 20cm) can accommodate all patient sizes onto the system.

    System has features as follows:
