Brainlab has been a key player in the field of precision radiotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for over two decades. After taking a deeper look at today’s fundamental challenges in SRS, Brainlab has moved away from a uniform treatment planning system to a set of exceptional applications for contouring and dose planning that augment what is currently available. Automated, intelligent and indication-specific Elements allow for optimal customization around clinical needs. Elements use standard interfaces and can function with a variety of different workflows, treatment delivery systems and positioning technologies. Elements Cranial SRS quickly and automatically creates stereotactic radiosurgery plans for complex cranial indications, enabling both fast planning and delivery without compromising treatment quality by leveraging a 4π optimization algorithm. Elements Multiple Brain Mets SRS simply and efficiently creates an extremely powerful treatment that enables the user to treat multiple metastases in one session with reduced toxicity. With Elements Contrast Clearance Analysis, differentiation of brain regions with high and low vascular activity is quickly made visible, helping the decision-making process in most brain tumor cases. Elements Spine SRS offers clinical efficiency during planning and delivery including co-registration between MR and CT in complex regions, consistent and accurate target definition and automatic creation of highly conformal doses.
On the positioning and monitoring side, ExacTrac Dynamic provides precise target control by enabling highly accurate patient positioning as well as intrafractional position monitoring to help clinicians deliver fast, precise image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT). The system addresses a wide range of clinical challenges and facilitates the treatment of extra-cranial indications such as breast cancer using our Deep Inspiration Breath Hold (DIBH)1 workflow and prostate cancer with our Implanted Marker Monitoring workflow. Consistency of radiosurgery treatments and access to state-of-the-art care remain cornerstones of the Brainlab vision. That’s why Brainlab initiated the Novalis Certified program to ensure that radiosurgery programs remain safe and efficient as treatments become increasingly sophisticated. Hospitals can obtain certification after they have successfully undergone an external audit conducted by the independent Novalis Circle expert group. Brainlab customers can join the Novalis Circle, a worldwide network of clinicians dedicated to the advancement of radiosurgery. It provides a communication and collaboration network for developing new ideas and optimizing treatments that will continue to change the face of cancer treatment. Furthermore, Brainlab supports the statistical mining of data with the SRS Registry. In partnership with the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), the Registry aims to not only create benchmarks in radiosurgery, but also use statistical data to drive future decisions and the evolution of care.
