SNO 2019

24th Annual Meeting and Education Day of the Society for NeuroOncology

Visit Brainlab at SNO 2019 in Phoenix

Brainlab has a long history as an innovator in the area of cranial treatments for both surgery and oncology and continuously aims to increase efficiency of planning and delivery.

Brainlab will also be hosting a Novalis Circle Symposium on Friday, November 22, 2019.

Brainlab Elements “It’s Elementary”

Brainlab Elements are efficient, effective, à la carte software modules serving multiple clinical specialties, including interactive and automatic segmentation applications for state-of-the-art planning of image guided surgery and efficient workflows for automated SRS.

Elements Contrast Clearance Analysis

Contrast Clearance Analysis is a novel MRI-based methodology for the differentiation of contrast clearance and accumulation in brain tumor datasets. The high resolution analysis results provide additional insights to support clinicians during ongoing assessment and decision-making for multiple clinical specialties, including radiology, oncology, and neurosurgery.

Elements Fibertracking

Easily enrich anatomical images with detailed information about eloquent white matter structures to preserve vital functions. Fibertracking processes and visualizes DTI data to enable more refined surgical approaches.

  • Brain Projection view for direct review and planning on the cortex
  • Dynamic live tracking in 2D, 3D and Brain Projection views
  • Drag-and-drop structure selection for region-of-interest based tracking
  • Immediate update of displayed result upon each interaction

Elements Virtual iMRI Cranial

Bridge the gap between preoperative plans and intraoperative scans. With intraoperative MR or CT images available, Virtual iMRI Cranial simulates the status quo of surgical plans.

  • Facilitates continued use of preoperative treatment plans
  • Deforms a preoperative plan based on an intraoperative scan (MR or CT)
  • Simulates anatomical changes caused by the intervention
  • Eliminates the need to repeat planning steps like fiber tractography or segmentation
  • Helps to quantify tissue deformation and estimate the extent of resection

Indication-Specific Radiosurgery Treatment Planning Software

Brainlab will also present the Elements software portfolio, composed of indication-specific applications for cranial, spine and multiple brain metastases radiosurgery. All Elements are designed to streamline and expedite the radiosurgery treatment planning process and include efficient contouring and fusion tools to ensure fast and complete workflows for SRS treatments. Highly automated, they enable both expert and less experienced users to achieve the same consistent plan quality.

While each Elements application has the common goal of quick planning, sparing organs at risk, and creating highly conformal and steep doses, each is specifically tailored to the unique needs of its indication.

Multiple Brain Mets SRS, utilizes a dedicated algorithm to treat multiple lesions with a single isocenter that guarantees target coverage while optimizing MLC apertures for conformity and steep dose gradients. With features such as knowledge-based anatomical segmentation, MRI distortion correction, automatic adaptive dose grid, and an isodose line prescription option, users can rapidly create plans adapted to the specific needs of every patient.

Spine SRS provides clinical efficiency for both treatment planning and delivery, addressing the current challenges in spine radiosurgery. The software offers improved clinical efficiency through highly automated workflows for spine curvature correction, consortium consensus PTV definition, and Monte Carlo dose plan optimization.

Cranial SRS offers VMAT planning optimized for radiosurgery of arteriovenous malformation (AVM), pituitary adenoma, vestibular schwannoma, meningioma, and large metastases. High plan quality is achieved by leveraging a 4Pi optimization algorithm and clinically-generated controls that unite all the options and benefits demanded by benign indications.

In combination with Elements, the room-based ExacTrac Positioning and Monitoring system allows for highly accurate monitoring of patient motion and internal anatomical shifts during treatment, at any table position, even while the treatment beam is on.
