Portal Imagers

Consistency of the treatment fields position accuracy is confirmed through X-rays (called "port films") taken at pre-established intervals during treatment. Many centers utilize a digital portal imaging system instead of conventional film. The portal image is taken with a very short exposure shot of the MV X-ray beam used for treatment.

The portal images taken at treatment time are compared to X-ray images taken as part of the planning process. This side by side comparison of the two images insures that the anatomy to be treated matches the tissue selected during the planning process.
