Initia-RT installs TrackLeaf mMLC at a UK Hospital

July 9, 2007 - Initia-RT recently reported that it has completed the installation of the TrackLeaf dynamic micro multi-leaf collimator (mMLC) at The Royal Marsden Hospital, NHS Foundation Trust, reportedly delivering target conformity, leaf speed and a platform for upgrade to real-time target tracking.

Reportedly the only mMLC on the market with four sets of leaves, the TrackLeaf will be used on their existing Elekta linear accelerators to offer additional functionality including stereotactic radiosurgery, DIMRT (dynamic intensity modulated radiotherapy) and IMAT (intensity modulated arc therapy).

Treatment planning will be done using Initia’s CrossPlan TPS software to drive the advanced features of the TrackLeaf, while CrossPlan’s full DICOM RT suite, will allow fluent two-way communication with third party virtual simulation and planning applications. This will allow the customer to utilize already existing workstations and workflow in their environment to pre-plan the patient and export the data file to CrossPlan for final dose computation.
