Real-time Tumor Position and Motion Tracking with Calypso Beacon

Real-time Tumor Position and Motion Tracking with Calypso Beacon

The Calypso Beacon® GPS system allows real-time tracking of tumor position and motion with sub-millimeter accuracy by utilizing miniaturized, non-ionizing implanted electromagnetic transponders called beacons. The beacons activate through harmless electromagnetic waves to communicate with the Calypso GPS system, assuring radiation is delivered precisely to the prescribed target by continuously and accurately tracking real-time tumor position and motion.
