SEFM 2017


At this year’s SEFM-SEPR , Brainlab will be presenting a broad range of the Elements portfolio, indication-specific software applications for Cranial, Spine and Multiple Brain Mets SRS. All Elements are designed to streamline and expedite the radiotherapy treatment planning process and include efficient contouring and fusion tools to ensure fast and complete workflows for SRS treatments.

While each Elements application has the common goals of quick planning, sparing organs at risk, and creating highly conformal doses, each is specifically targeted to the unique needs of its respective area. Cranial SRS optimizes planning with an integrated 4π algorithm for patient-tailored treatments. Multiple Brain Mets SRS makes possible the simultaneous delivery of single-session treatments for up to 15 metastases. Spine SRS is fully focused on important dose falloff along the specific vertebrae for enhanced spinal cord sparing.

All Elements can be used with Brainlab’s patient positioning and monitoring system ExacTrac, which provides continual intrafractional monitoring with sub-millimetric delivery precision.

DECISION MAKING TRAMs — Treatment Response Assessment Maps

TRAMs—Treatment Response Assessment Maps— is a method developed in collaboration with Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv.

The TRAMs methodology uses MR images to differentiate tumor progression from treatment effects in most cranial tumor patients. TRAMs is the only technology currently available to reliably depict tumor versus non-tumor tissues.

Physicians at Sheba Medical have published clinical histological validations in over 50 patients with primary or metastatic brain tumors. The clinical outcomes with the conclusion that TRAMs presents a model-independent approach providing high resolution efficient separation between tumor and non-tumor tissues will be available at the booth.


Intuitive to learn and use, these pre-planning tools are optimized and tailored for physicians. Contouring Elements can be chosen à la carte and provide unique MR-based automatic segmentation that processes multiple MR sequences. Part of those applications are amongst others Anatomical Mapping for labeling all tissue classes of MR datasets to identify organs at risk, dataset co-registration using Image Fusion with Cranial Distortion Correction, tumor definition with Smartbrush.

Brainlab Lunch Symposium


Brainlab invites you to join a Lunch Symposium followed by a hands-on workshop at the 5th Congreso Conjunto SEFM-SEPR to learn about indication-specific Brainlab Elements software for cranial, spine and multiple brain metastases. Highly automated and accurate, Elements Cranial SRS, Spine SRS and Multiple Brain Mets SRS support clinicians in delivering safer, more efficient radiosurgery treatments.


01:30 PM – 02:00 PM | Stereotactic Radiosurgery with Brainlab Elements | Dr. Manuel Todorovic, Head of Medical Physics | University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf | Germany
02:00 PM – 02:30 PM | Hands-on workshop (Limited to 20 participants, please register via email)
