European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology
About ESTRO 2016ESTRO is an interdisciplinary society where radiation oncologists, medical physicists, biologists, brachytherapists and radiation therapists aspire to join forces with other organisations in the oncology field that share ESTRO’s vision of excellence in cancer treatmentwww.estro.org
What’s New at ESTRO 2016?
The European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) Meeting and Exhibition is the premier opportunity for healthcare professionals to receive state-of-the-art continuing medical education, network with colleagues and learn about the latest cancer treatment products and services.
ESTRO’s vision to develop optimal patient care and equitable patient access to highest standard radiation therapy is reflected in this year’s offering of informative symposia, enlightening lectures and engaging debates.
Brainlab will be hosting a Novalis Circle Lunch Symposium on Sunday, May 1st at 13:30.
Meet renowned clinicians who will be presenting the latest innovations and treatments.
COMPLETE RADIOSURGERY WORKFLOWS
At this year’s ESTRO, Brainlab will be presenting a broad range of the Elements portfolio, including efficient and effective software applications such as Multiple Brain Mets SRS. All Elements are designed to streamline and expedite the radiotherapy treatment planning process. New to ESTRO this year, Brainlab will be showcasing TRAMs*, a neuro-oncological workflow to differentiate tumor progression from treatment effects.
In combination with Elements, Brainlab will showcase workflows for Cranial, Spinal and Lung radiosurgery using ExacTrac® Patient Positioning and Monitoring.
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.
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.
For Lung, ExacTrac Motion Management* provides a patient tailored treatment with significantly reduced safety and motion margins with increased sparing of surrounding healthy tissue and side-effect free treatment regimes.
DECISION MAKING TRAMs – Treatment Response Assessment Maps
Brand new this year at ESTRO is TRAMs—Treatment Response Assessment Maps—a method developed in collaboration with Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv.
TRAMs are used in neuro-oncological decision making to differentiate tumor progression from treatment effects such as pseudo-progression or radiation necrosis. The method works by acquiring two MRI images—one at two minutes and another at 75 minutes after the injection of the contrast agent—and subtracting the first image from the second. Tumor cells, which have efficient contrast agent clearance, show up blue on the subtracted image, while non-tumor tissues with less efficient clearance appear red, allowing clinicians to determine further course of treatment.
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.
MULTIPLE BRAIN METASTASES 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.
NOVALIS CERTIFIED™ ACCREDITATION PROGRAM
Novalis Certified promotes high standards in SRS and SBRT by helping to ensure the delivery of cranial and body radiosurgery at a level of efficacy and safety that corresponds with best practice clinical workflows.
Built upon the guidance of the Novalis Expert Panel, Novalis Certified builds on other accreditation programs available with a dedicated focus on attaining excellence in SRS and SBRT.
Come by booth #3600 for hands-on demonstrations and to explore our entire range of radiosurgery products.
See you at ESTRO 2016 in Turin!
