Accuray Inc. announced on Jan. 26 that Miami Cancer Institute, a part of Baptist Health South Florida, is now treating patients using the new, uniquely “smart” Radixact Treatment Delivery System, fully integrated with the new Accuray Precision Treatment Planning System and iDMS Data Management System. Miami Cancer Institute selected the Radixact platform for its new, state-of-the-art treatment center because it offers leading edge, advanced treatment faster and expands access for more patients, while providing the foundation for anticipated clinical capabilities in the future.
“Miami Cancer Institute has achieved an important milestone with these first patient treatments. We are making meaningful progress toward our goal to offer advanced, comprehensive radiation therapy to our patients,” said Minesh P. Mehta, M.D., Deputy Director and Chief of Radiation Oncology at Miami Cancer Institute. “We set an aggressive schedule for the treatments on the first day and were able to successfully treat all patients, in less time than planned. Our team was extremely impressed with this performance, which demonstrated to us that the Radixact System is a viable mainstream radiation therapy option capable of providing advanced treatments to a high volume of patients.”
The Radixact System is designed to be a highly reliable radiation therapy device which offers clinicians the opportunity to improve the cancer treatment experience throughout a patient’s treatment journey, including when retreatment is necessary.
System highlights include:
“We congratulate the Miami Cancer Institute radiation oncology team on treating their first patients using the Radixact System,” said Joshua H. Levine, president and CEO of Accuray. “Their experience, along with that of the other early Radixact adopters, are already proving the system to be significantly faster than the previous platform. That speed, combined with enhanced functionality in important areas such as adaptive treatment planning and retreatment, will enable our customers to more efficiently and effectively deliver precise radiation treatments to more patients.”Back To Top
