Associazione Italiana di Radioterapia Oncologica
AIRO is the Italian Annual Radiotherapy Congress for physicians and physicists to meet, present new scientific work, network with colleagues and learn about the latest cancer treatment products and services. This year’s meeting will be held in Rimini, with more than 700 participants expected.
What’s new at AIRO 2016?
COMPLETE, INDICATION SPECIFIC, WORKFLOWS FOR BRAIN, SPINE AND MULTIPLE BRAIN METS
At this year’s AIRO, Brainlab will be presenting a broad range of the Elements portfolio, including efficient and effective software applications.
All Elements are designed to streamline and expedite the radiotherapy treatment planning process.
For Brain, Brainlab presents Elements Cranial, a unique application that optimizes the planning process based on cranial indications—from AVM, Pituitary Adenoma, Vestibular Schwannoma, and Meningioma to large metastases.
With the implementation of a 4π algorithm into the Cranial SRS software, Brainlab Elements are now set to become even more intelligent and efficient. 4π—licensed exclusively from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada—enables patient tailored, optimized treatment trajectories aiming at minimizing radiation dose to organs at risk without compromising target coverage or treatment times.
For Spine, the new Spinal Planning Element* has an algorithm that internally breaks down planning target volumes into a number of smaller targets to achieve excellent dose planning metrics and a highly conformal dose.
MULTIPLE BRAIN METS SRS
Multiple Brain Metastases SRS, part of Brainlab Elements, allows delivery of highly conformal single-session treatments while helping to minimize dose spread to surrounding healthy tissue. Planning and treatment time can be significantly reduced even with as many as 10 tumors to treat.
After analyzing customer feedback and gaining better insights to the many limitations of the common auto-segmentation approach, Brainlab introduces Anatomical Mapping—a universal software model of the human anatomy that is not limited to certain organs but thoroughly defines bony and vascular structures, muscles and fat tissue. Tissue classes can be displayed with different levels of detail, include anatomical landmarks or may be grouped into regions.
PATIENT POSITIONING AND MONITORING WITH EXACTRAC®
In combination with Elements, Brainlab will showcase workflows for Cranial and Spine using ExacTrac® Patient Positioning and Monitoring.
With over 850 installed systems worldwide, in-room X-Ray based ExacTrac® Positioning and Monitoring system has redefined automation, efficiency and patient positioning flexibility in the treatment room.
Instantaneous X-Ray imaging with proprietary 6D fusion provides fast and highly accurate position verification and reduces the possibility of geographical miss due to patient motion or internal anatomical shifts.
Thanks to the 4π algorithm used during planning, ExacTrac is the only system that can detect intra-fractional tumor motion even at non-coplanar couch angles.*
