Clinical Trials

This investigation will involve an assessment of the Breathe Well system in a clinical setting for lung cancer patients. This study will be performed over 7 radiation oncology departments across NSW and ACT, promoting the widespread clinical implementation of Breathe Well. A total of 75 lung cancer patients will be recruited; AVIATOR will be the largest study of its kind to date.

This study will recruit 30 liver cancer patients undergoing stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). SBRT involves a very high radiation dose to the target area so accurate targeting and tight treatment margins are an absolute must to minimize the risk to the surrounding healthy tissue, two factors that Breathe Well can assist with.

This study will accelerate Breathe Well to the forefront of respiratory management technology - it aims to incorporate real-time tumor motion obtained from MR images with the Breathe Well system to provide patients and clinicians real-time feedback on not only the patient's breathing, but motion of the tumor itself. This study is already well underway and will recruit a total of 60 lung cancer patients. Protocol No: 05-2011 / 13778

Using radiation therapy is common in the treatment of breast cancer, however for treatment of the left breast, this often puts the heart in harms way of the radiation beam. To put as much distance between the breast and heart as possible, patients are asked to to a deep breath and hold it during treatment. This deep breath expands the chest and puts as much distance between the left breast and heart as possible, putting the heart out of harms way. This study will test the Breathe Well system to guide patients to maintain a stable and consistent breath hold for more accurate, and safer treatment delivery.
