Meeting highlights: innovations in treatment planning and delivery

Meeting attendees are invited to visit Accuray booth #1517 throughout the meeting to see software demonstrations, hear from industry experts and speak with company representatives.

The CyberKnife System upgrade with the Accuray Precision™ Treatment Planning System (TPS): the fully integrated Accuray TPS allows clinicians to reduce treatment times, while advanced TPS features enhance workflow efficiencies.

The Radixact System: the next generation TomoTherapy® platform represents a major step forward in treatment speed, efficiency and ease of use, enabling customers to deliver precise radiation treatments to a high volume of patients.

The CyberKnife System High-Definition ImagingRing (HDI)*: a cutting-edge cone beam CT (CBCT) imaging system designed to enable both 3D volumetric imaging and adaptive radiotherapy workflows. When paired with the System's highly accurate couch imaging and patient registration, along with true robotic alignment, it is projected to facilitate unmatched precision and versatility in stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy. *Work in progress and not available for sale in any market.
