Deep Inspirational Breath-hold (DIBH) is a technique used during radiotherapy for breast cancer, aimed to reduce heart dosage, which is associated with late-term cardiovascular complications.
Implementation of this technique in combination with radiotherapy in prone position is the subject of my research.
We’re developing devices aimed to achieve this radiotherapy position and to help the patients reach longer DIBH-durations.
