Scalp Cooling Machines

 

The FDA cleared DigniCap (www.dignicap.com) and Paxman (www.paxmanusa.com) systems (machine operated scalp cooling systems) are continuing to increase their installations around the US. If a facility in your area has acquired one, that is an excellent option for taxane chemos only. BOTH SYSTEMS ARE NOW APPROVED FOR PATIENTS WITH ANY TYPE OF SOLID TUMOR. You can read about these systems on their websites. Arrangements to use these systems are made directly with the chemo clinic, not with the manufacturer, and pricing is set by the clinic.
