What is Elekta Synergy?

What is Elekta Synergy?

Elekta Synergy Platform is designed to enable straightforward integration of the key imaging technologies that will transform an advanced linear accelerator into an IGRT system.

What is XVI in Elekta?

The development of X-ray volume imaging (XVI) and its suite of imaging tools was driven by the need to visualize internal structures, within the reference frame of the treatment system, to reduce geometric uncertainties.

What is XVI in radiotherapy?

Abstract. Purpose: X-ray volumetric imaging (XVI) for the first time allows for the on-treatment acquisition of three-dimensional (3D) kV cone beam computed tomography (CT) images.

What is Elekta Infinity?

When was tomotherapy invented?

History. The tomotherapy technique was developed in the early 1990s at the University of Wisconsin–Madison by Professor Thomas Rockwell Mackie and Paul Reckwerdt.

How much is an Elekta linear accelerator?

$750,000 to $1,500,000 The linear accelerators in this category include newer systems, including the Varian TrueBeam and Elekta LINAC.

What is the difference between radiotherapy and TomoTherapy?

In general, radiation therapy (or radiotherapy) has developed with a strong reliance on homogeneity of dose throughout the tumor. Tomotherapy embodies the sequential delivery of radiation to different parts of the tumor which raises two important issues.

Is TomoTherapy a type of IMRT?

TomoTherapy is a type of IMRT. To have the treatment you lie on the radiotherapy couch which is moved through a donut-shaped machine. The radiation source in the machine rotates around you in a spiral pattern. It is also sometimes called helical tomotherapy.

What are the three types of brachytherapy?

Sure, there are 3 types of brachytherapy: low-dose rate implants, high-dose rate implants, and permanent implants. Low-dose rate implants, often called LDR for short, are implants that stay in for 7 days or less before they are taken out.

Who gets brachytherapy?

Brachytherapy is a highly effective treatment for certain types of cancer. It’s most effective on cancers that haven’t spread, or metastasized. Internal radiation therapy takes place inside the body. Compared to external radiation therapy, brachytherapy targets just the tumor, sparing nearby healthy tissue and organs.
