American Association of Physicists in Medicine
ABOUT AAPM 2017
The theme of this year’s American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Annual Meeting is: Connecting Our Pathways. Unifying our Profession.
The Meeting will feature the latest research medical imaging and radiation therapy, including emphasis on the increasing integration on advanced imaging technologies in the guidance of medical therapeutics.
At this year’s AAPM, Brainlab will be presenting a broad range of the Elements portfolio, comprised of indication-specific software applications for cranial, spine and multiple brain metastases radiosurgery. 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.
Spine SRS* is fully focused on important dose falloff along specific vertebrae for enhanced spinal cord sparing.
MULTIPLE BRAIN METS SRS
Multiple Brain Mets SRS makes possible the simultaneous delivery of single-session treatments for multiple metastases.
SRS CONTOURING ELEMENTS
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. Among these are Anatomical Mapping, which labels all tissue classes of MR datasets to identify organs at risk, Cranial Distortion Correction* for dataset co-registration using Image Fusion, and Smartbrush, which delineates tumors.
EXACTRAC PATIENT POSITIONING AND MONITORING
All Elements can be used with the ExacTrac Patient Positioning and Monitoring system, which provides continual intrafractional monitoring with sub-millimetric delivery precision.
Join us at booth #7031 to explore our range of innovations in radiosurgery and radiotherapy.
