LAP has been delivering state of the art patient alignment laser systems for radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, and diagnostic radiology since 1984.
LAP lasers have a solid track record in clinical use worldwide. LAP develops solutions for new diagnostic and therapeutic radiological applications in close cooperation with leading institutions and equipment manufacturers. Building on a strong tradition of experience in the medical industry, LAP has become the world leader in laser systems for simulation and treatment room applications.
Laser technology – the precision interface between patient and machine
Precise, accurate and reproducible patient positioning is paramount to the success of radiation therapy.
Virtual simulation is the process of transferring the radiation therapy plan from a static 3D patient model on to the patient being treated. Virtual simulation is not only a process of marking coordinates on the patient; it is also a fundamental quality assurance step in the radiation therapy treatment. The validity of the radiation therapy plan is checked during the virtual simulation process and ensures the treatment beams can be aligned to the planning target volume.
Positioning and marking lasers represent the interface between the patient and the machine. LAP lasers deliver the highest precision, accuracy and reproducibility to give radiation therapy a reliable base.
Moving laser systems
The characteristic features of LAP laser systems are sophisticated technology, quality and design for more than 30 years. This level of excellence has made us the global market leader for patient alignment in radiotherapy.
Precise patient marking, accurate planning and exact positioning are key factors for a successful treatment. Patient marking takes place during CT simulation (virtual simulation) and is required for reproducible treatment positioning on the LINAC.
The DORADO laser system together with the LAP laser control supports this crucial and important marking process and conforms to your department’s workflow. You select the mounting version, the laser color and the control system. Offering various configurations and mounting options the DORADO laser system is perfectly suited to meet any and all room requirements.

Laser control systems
ARGO NAVIS – workflow management platform
ARGO NAVIS® is a versatile LAP platform which is used to store and distribute patient data, patient positioning data, or control information through a centralised database. ARGO NAVIS provides the radiation therapy department with increased productivity, convenience and accessibility.
CARINAsim®, in conjunction with ARGO NAVIS, satisfies the requirements of all virtual simulation users and ensures quality driven therapy processes. The modern graphical user interface intuitively displays all necessary information to help speed up the patient marking procedure for improved patient throughput while at the same time helping to reduce user errors that could lead to decreased patient safety. Patient information, isocenter and field projections along with laser control are all at the user’s fingertip.
Modern radiation therapy places high demands on patient alignment:
- precise positioning, to prevent healthy tissue from being unnecessarily exposed to radiation
- reproducible positioning, to reach maximum impact by focused therapy
- fast positioning, to not waste time during alignment.
LAP offers several solutions for patient-setup:
