Event Details

STEREOTACTIC RADIOSURGERY—MORE THAN JUST DELIVERY

Providing precision radiation treatments is more than just a matter of placing the isocenter and delivering the dose. Radiosurgery is a complete process involving imaging, fusion, enrichment, dose planning and delivery. Streamlining and increasing the efficiency of this process with advanced technology is how Brainlab differentiates itself in the market.

BRAINLAB ELEMENTS—INCREASING EFFICIENCY AND SIMPLICITY

Brainlab Elements for radiation therapy focus on a single clinical indication and are frontloaded with intelligence and automation to help streamline clinical workflows. Elements include robust Image Fusion, indication-specific brush tools and highly-automated dose planning, quickly resulting in precise and consistent plans.

With the latest algorithm, called 4Pi—licensed exclusively from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada—Brainlab Elements are now set to become even more intelligent and efficient. 4Pi enables patient tailored, optimized treatment trajectories aiming at minimizing radiation dose to organs at risk without compromising target coverage or treatment times.*

Visit Brainlab at booth #4071 to learn how indication-specific workflows can help you create more robust, efficient and consistent treatment plans.

PATIENT POSITIONING AND MONITORING WITH EXACTRAC

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 4Pi algorithm used during planning, ExacTrac is the only system that can detect intra-fractional tumor motion even at non-coplanar couch angles.*

Visit Brainlab to see how ExacTrac can enhance your existing linac.

DEDICATED TO HIGH STANDARDS IN SRS & SBRT

In line with this year’s meeting theme of communicating value, Brainlab presents Novalis Certified, the only program dedicated to high standards in stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy. Based on the Novalis Standard, defined and elaborated by an independent group of industry experts, Novalis Certification consists of a rigorous external review process that aims to increase treatment quality and consistency and communicate that high standard both internally and to patients.

We invite you to join Timothy D. Solberg’s (UCSF Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center, San Francisco) poster presentation ‘Initial Experience with an Independent Certification Program for Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy’ on Sunday, July 31, 2016 from 3:00 – 6:00 PM in the Exhibit Hall. For more information, see the poster PDF here.

To learn more about Novalis Certified, please visit us at booth #4071.
