Accuray Launches New TomoTherapy® H™ Series Featuring TomoEDGE™

"TomoTherapy's ability to treat the full range of disease sites, including even the most complex tumors, makes it an invaluable resource for cancer patients," said Wade Gebara, M.D. Chief of Radiation Oncology at Berkshire Medical Center, Pittsfield, Mass. "With increased speed and reliability, the new TomoTherapy System will provide the opportunity for more patients to benefit from this personalized technology."

Also on display in Accuray's ASTRO booth (#7101) is the CyberKnife M6 FIM Sytem – part of the CyberKnife ® M6 Series – which is pending FDA 510(k) clearance and not yet available for commercial distribution in the United States. The new CyberKnife M6 FIM and FM Systems feature the InCise™ Multileaf Collimator, which combines the benefits of beam shaping with the flexibility of non-isocentric, non-coplanar delivery. The new InCise Multileaf Collimator (MLC) was designed specifically for stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) treatments, giving the system the capability to extend its radiosurgical precision into a broader field of applications. The system is intended to treat large and irregular tumors more efficiently with excellent dose gradients, to expand the number of patients eligible for treatment.

Researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia – who compared treatment plans created with a theoretical MLC on the CyberKnife System to those created originally with the CyberKnife Iris™ Collimator and conventional Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) plans – found that an MLC mounted on a robotic arm could potentially offer numerous clinical benefits, including faster treatment delivery, better target coverage and a sharper dose fall off could be achieved than a typical gantry- based IMRT plan or previous CyberKnife treatments. The Fox Chase researchers demonstrated the potential to create treatment plans that would spare critical structures around tumors better with a robotically mounted MLC, providing the ability to treat tumors using a higher dose without increasing the normal tissue toxicity.

Dates, times and locations of ASTRO clinical presentations featuring the CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems are available here.
