What’s New at AAPM 2019?
Brainlab will showcase ExacTrac Dynamic*, a radiotherapy patient positioning and monitoring system offering value on multiple fronts, including expanded clinical workflows, broad technological advancements, enhanced user and patient experience, and technology consolidation. ExacTrac Dynamic is the next generation of ExacTrac X-Ray, a clinically proven positioning and monitoring solution for radiotherapy treatments. Since its release in 1999, ExacTrac systems have been used in more than one million treatments worldwide.
Indication-Specific Radiosurgery Treatment Planning Software
Brainlab will also present the Elements software portfolio, composed of indication-specific software 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 experts and less experienced users both 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 specifically tailored to the unique needs of the 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 gradient. With features such as knowledge-based anatomical segmentation, MRI distortion correction, automatic adaptive dose grid, and an isodoseline prescription option, users can rapidly create plans adapted to the specific needs of every patient.
Cranial SRS is VMAT planning optimized for radiosurgery of arteriovenous malformation (AVM), pituitary adenoma, vestibular schwannoma, meningioma, and large metastases. High plan quality can be achieved by leveraging a 4Pi optimization algorithm and clinically-generated controls that unite all the options and benefits demanded by benign indications.
Spine SRS offers clinical efficiency for both treatment planning and delivery, addressing the current challenges in spine radiosurgery. The software provides improved clinical efficiency through highly automated workflows for spine curvature correction, consortium consensus PTV definition, and Monte Carlo dose plan optimization.
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.
