AccuBoost System Delivers Focused Radiation to Lumpectomy Cavity

Advanced Radiation’s AccuBoost system is designed to deliver focused radiation to the lumpectomy cavity following either whole breast irradiation (WBI) or as a monotherapy for accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) treatment.

AccuBoost is reportedly the first system to allow high dose rate (HDR) treatment of breast cancer in a noninvasive way. This noninvasive, real-time image-guided treatment allows for better targeting of the lumpectomy cavity and makes it possible to “see what you treat and treat what you see,” according to the company. AccuBoost can be delivered either prior to or after the main external beam portion of women’s treatment. The breast is immobilized and imaged in a manner similar to mammography but without excessive pressure. An applicator is positioned to reportedly deliver radiation with far better accuracy.
