The Next-Generation Cylindrical Water Scanning System
Commissioning and beam scanning are fundamental to building a strong radiation therapy program. That’s why we significantly enhanced our pioneering cylindrical tank design for greater clinical confidence and workflow efficiency.
Faster, Easier, Hyper-Accurate
SunSCAN™ 3D simplifies beam scanning with SRS-class accuracy and user-centered design.
Made for Every Clinical User
Conventional linac, SRS linac or bore-based. Commissioning novice or experienced clinician. SunSCAN 3D makes commissioning and annuals easier and more efficient than ever before — with SRS-class scanning accuracy and compatibility with nearly every machine and user.
Simplified Beam Scanning
From your Trusted End-to-End Quality Management Provider
SunSCAN 3D standardizes water tank setup with automation and mitigates the need for tank shifts.
- Unique Cylindrical Shape – removes need for tank shifts, which take time and compromise scanning setup
- Single Setup – 65 cm scan range allows 40 x 40 cm field scans, even at 100 cm SSD and 40 cm depth
- Consistent Detector Orientation – smallest part of the detector always measures the beam edge, minimizing stem and cable effects and water movement
Enhanced SRS & SBRT Accuracy
Meeting the Demands of Stereotactic Programs
SunSCAN 3D’s enhanced electronic resolution improves Signal to Noise Ratio by as much as a factor of 2, and an enhanced Median Filter provides glassy smooth scans while maintaining data integrity.
Hyper accurate scanning, verified with a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), delivers:
- 0.1 mm accuracy throughout the tank,
- 0.05 mm reproducibility, and
- 0.02 mm resolution.
“With SunSCAN 3D, in form and function, it’s clear Sun Nuclear put thought into every detail to help medical physics teams work smartly. It’s easy to set up, fill and drain. Plus, it’s light and compact for moving and storing. Above all, it offers high accuracy for confidence in your commissioning and annuals.”
Medical Physicist, U.S.
Setting up the tank, collecting scan data, and storing and comparing scans is made easy with the SunDOSE Software. An intuitive interface with reduced clicks makes completing commissioning easier than ever.
