Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS)

Accuracy is key in SRS. AlignRT delivers a linac-based frameless SRS solution which is proven to be accurate across several independent studies¹, used in many world-renowned cancer hospitals and has published patient outcomes data comparable to more invasive techniques².

Traditional intracranial SRS treatments can involve fixing large metal frames to the patient’s head or use claustrophobic full face masks which do not allow for monitoring of patient position or patient interaction with the therapist. AlignRT’s frameless solution with an open face mask and real-time position monitoring enables the high positional accuracy required for SRS, with a focus on patient wellbeing.

What is more, studies suggest that AlignRT-based SRS treatments are fast²,³ as well as comfortable. They may also be implemented as part of the standard treatment workflow without disrupting the clinic.

Testimonials

  • "Vision RT decreases both the time of breast setup for right and left breast lesions, and has really improved our accuracy. Vision RT has also improved the setup for many other disease sites … it is improving our accuracy and throughput."  
    Nancy Wiggers MD - Nancy Wiggers MD - Radiation Oncologist, Department Chair, Northside Hospital*
  • “What we were really after was equivalent positional accuracy. If we could find a technology and justify to ourselves that it is equivalent to existing technologies, that’s what we were going for. Enter Vision RT and their AlignRT product, and we had the tool that we were looking for.”
    Todd Pawlicki, PhD DABR FAAPM - Todd Pawlicki, PhD DABR FAAPM - Vice Chair and Professor, Dept. of Radiation Medicine and Applied Sciences, UCSD
  • “Vision RT provides a simple-to-use and very effective way to save dose to the heart and lung in these patients. Our ambition is to widen the use of respiratory gating in the future.”
    Mathias Dierl - Mathias Dierl - Head of Medical Physics, Klinikum Bayreuth, Germany
  • "It is much easier to prepare and edit the patient data in AlignRT Advance. The best feature is the Postural Video module because it allows fast recognition of misalignments. It is a powerful tool to understand exactly where the changes happen when the patient falls outside tolerance during the treatment."
    Dr. Vania Batista - Dr. Vania Batista -Heidelberg University Hospital
  • “AlignRT is a safe and non-invasive method to accurately position and monitor patients throughout treatment delivery.”
    Karl Jordan - Karl Jordan - Medical Physicist. St Vincent's Private Hospital (SVPH) Dublin
  • “We’ve had 53 out of 54 patients where we have not had to repeat their weekly X-Ray images. That is a significant finding for us –it’s showing us that we’re getting a dose reduction because we’re not having to repeat X-Ray images on these patients, and it’s also showing us how reliable the AlignRT system really is in patient positioning.”
    Heather Warmouth BS RT(T) - Heather Warmouth BS RT(T) - Radiation Therapist, Fletcher Allen Health Care (TX):
  • "I have to say that this is really the missing piece that we felt we needed in order to move fully to frameless, image-guided radiation … we are very comfortable treating multiple metastases, feeling that we are able to give treatment as planned."  
    Josh Yamada MD FRCPC - Josh Yamada MD FRCPC - Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center*
  • “AlignRT helps us increase confidence in every treatment we use it for allowing for more accurate treatment delivery. In addition, tattooless treatments are proving popular with our patients.”
    Luke Rock - Luke Rock - Head of Medical Physics, Beacon Hospital, Dublin
  • "With SBRT, since it is such a high dose in such a small amount of time we often [used to] reimage in the middle of treatment, and AlignRT® has helped us not have to do that … [it’s] a huge time-saver."  ............ ............ ..................    ........     .......
