May 9, 2016 — Brainlab showcased its new Elements Cranial SRS (stereotactic radiosurgery) software at this year’s European Society for Radiation Oncology (ESTRO) 35, April 29-May 3 in Turin, Italy. Elements Cranial SRS offers both research and daily practice opportunities, dovetailing perfectly with ESTRO 35’s focus on multi- and interdisciplinary components in all aspects of radiosurgery treatment.
Strengthened by a new intellectual property, exclusively licensed to Brainlab, Elements Cranial SRS features a new algorithm that creates patient-specific arc trajectories by penalizing geometric collisions with critical structures and rewarding steep dose gradients toward such structures.
The new intellectual property license will help deliver patient-tailored, optimized arc trajectories aimed at minimizing radiation dose to organs at risk without compromising target coverage. The new algorithm optimizes dose delivery for selected gantry and couch positions. This optimization can be applied to fixed couch arcs as well as simultaneous gantry-couch movements. The software’s planning processes are streamlined and based on clinical need and user necessity.
