A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11925817B2) discloses a system that includes a radiotherapy machine with a gantry and a screen that rotates with the gantry. A server is configured to display a user interface on the screen, adjusting its orientation as the gantry changes orientation to maintain the original orientation. The user interface can include camera feeds from different positions within the radiotherapy machine, such as on the gantry or at the end of a couch, allowing for monitoring and control during radiotherapy sessions.

Furthermore, the system's server is equipped to execute a triangulation protocol using the camera image to identify the patient's position on the couch. It can compare this position to the gantry's path and halt movement if the patient is within the path, ensuring safety during treatment. Additionally, the server can display notifications on the screen in such instances and even disable the screen if necessary. This innovative system aims to enhance the efficiency and safety of radiotherapy procedures by providing real-time monitoring and control capabilities through a dynamic user interface that adapts to the machine's movements.
