Brainlab Incorporates Arc Trajectory Optimization in Next Generation Cranial Radiosurgery Software

New algorithm creates patient-specific arc trajectories by penalizing geometric collisions with critical structures and rewarding steep dose gradients

Next generation cranial radiosurgery software from Brainlab incorporates patient-specific arc trajectories with new algorithm. 

July 31, 2016 — Brainlab is showcasing innovations for the complete radiosurgery process, including arc trajectory optimization at this year’s AAPM (American Association of Physicists in Medicine) annual meeting. 

A 4Pi algorithm developed at Dalhousie University, Canada, and licensed exclusively to Brainlab, will support personalized treatment planning in the upcoming Brainlab Elements Cranial SRS software*. Used during the trajectory-based treatment planning phase, 4Pi is designed to reduce radiation dose to organs at risk without compromising target coverage or treatment times.

“Incorporating the 4Pi algorithm into the next generation of Brainlab cranial radiosurgery software can further increase the precision and efficiency of the treatments we offer,” said Stefan Vilsmeier_, president and CEO, Brainlab. “From planning to delivery, we strive to optimize the entire radiosurgery process.”
