Respiratory gating systems are the non-invasive, video guided systems which are used to precisely target the tumor in lung, breasts or upper abdomen while positioning a radiation beam on tumor site. Tumors in lungs and upper abdominal portion displace every time patient breaths which makes the administration of radiation therapy difficult. Respiratory gating systems monitor the movement of target or tumor caused by respiratory movement, and guide physicians to correlate tumor position in connection with the respiratory cycle of the patient. The system records the wave pattern of the patient’s respiratory cycle and determines movement of tumor in correlation with wave pattern. The gating threshold is set according to wave pattern so that the radiation dose is administered when tumor is in desired position and the beam ids cut off when tumor displaces. Owing to decreased risk of exposure of vital organs such as heart and liver, respiratory gating systems ate rapidly getting adopted. Some of the available respiratory gating systems are Real-time Position Management System, AZ-733VI, Gated RapidArc etc.
Respiratory Gating System Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing worldwide incidence of lung cancer and breast cancer would result in growth of global market for respiratory gating system. According to data obtained from Cancer Research U.K., incidence of lung cancer in 2013 was as high as 79.3 per 100,000 population. Technological advancements such as launch of 4D visualization system, increased sensitivity of the system etc. are expected to boost the market during the forecast period 2016-2026. However, high cost of the therapy is the major restraint for the growth of global respiratory gating system market.
