Acceletronics Installs Two TheraView Systems for IGRT Verification

M ay 13, 2009 - Acceletronics Inc. has completed the installation of two TheraView IGRT systems, one at Tampa Bay Radiation Oncology, Tampa, Fla. and one at Tampa Bay Radiation Oncology, Sun City Center, Fla.

The TheraView system is designed to deliver precise radiation therapy treatment delivery through the use of IGRT (image-guided radiation therapy). Immediately prior to each session for the delivery of radiation, the system takes a real-time X-ray image of the patient and compares it to the reference image taken at the time the treatment plan for the patient was developed. TheraView then instructs the therapist of any changes, thereby allowing the therapist to re-position the patient, as necessary, to ensure the delivery of radiation is accurate.

TheraView Target Check software includes automated treatment beam shape verification and patient position verification which provides precision and control to clinicians needed for both conventional, IGRT and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).

The TheraView system is adaptable to Varian, Elekta and Siemens linear accelerator systems and is available with the advanced Couch Set-Up Assistant (TCSA) option to facilitate rapid couch movement. Over 500 TheraView systems have been installed worldwide.
