July 6, 2020 — Advanced Radiation Therapy has completed the first AccuBoost Digital installation at Rhode Island Hospital (RIH). This state-of-the-art platform leverages the superior resolution of digital mammography in the delivery of breast radiation therapy. The instantaneous image acquisition of the digital design reduces the treatment time and improves patient workflow.

The AccuBoost treatment was developed for women choosing to retain their breast through a treatment course known as Breast Conserving Therapy (BCT). The clinical team at RIH has over a decade of experience in offering the AccuBoost treatment on the first generation platform with excellent clinical results. RIH has acquired the new Digital solution to improve the treatment workflow, patient experience, and benefit from the updated user interface. This upgraded platform is the ultimate option for women with early-stage breast cancer.

 “AccuBoost Digital takes adaptive brachytherapy to the next level and truly delivers a personalized daily treatment for every patient,” stated Adam Brandow, vice resident of technology of Advanced Radiation Therapy. He added, “Whether for the Boost portion of XBRT or for APBI, the streamlined workflow improves both the physician and patient experience. This unique technology enables an adaptive treatment with advanced targeting capability for the radiation oncologist to identify the target tissue at risk and deliver a conformal radiation treatment while minimizing stray radiation to neighboring organs such as the heart and lungs.”
