Contact with the Swedish Testbed for Innovative Radiotherapy makes it easier to simultaneously coordinate testing in a clinical setting at multiple hospitals. We provide a gateway to every university hospital in Sweden along with support throughout the testing process.
The Swedish Testbed for Innovative Radiotherapy tests and develops innovations in radiotherapy – new technology and new methods. Since the tests are conducted in an actual hospital environment, it will become apparent when innovations truly meet healthcare needs.
– We would like to discuss how we can use the testbed together in the immediate future, says operational project manager Peter Söderman, who is looking forward to meeting with radiotherapy personnel all over Sweden.
The Swedish Testbed is designing a national system for automatic reporting of radiotherapy data to national quality registers. This includes creating the technical conditions for connecting various local and national database systems.
A survey is being developed to involve cancer patients in the process of improving the care provided during radiotherapy. The patient is involved in evaluating innovations.
It is important to measure and check all geometric distortions in the MRI images that are to be used as a basis for radiotherapy. “Quality control phantoms” are often used to study such distortions
In the testbed, products, services and organisational solutions are evaluated in all phases of development. The tests can be more or less extensive, with or without patients.
