April 23, 2013 — Nucletron, an Elekta company, has introduced its redesigned Flexitron remote afterloading platform. Flexitron emphasizes safety and efficiency in the brachytherapy workflow, increasing the clinician's confidence that execution of all workflow steps will proceed as planned for brachytherapy/treatment delivery.
Key to the new Flexitron are advances to optimize the treatment delivery process. One of these features is an intuitive layout that efficiently leads the user through the treatment delivery workflow. Flexitron also includes transfer tubes that all are of the same 1000 mm length to reduce ambiguity, a "reference zero" at the entrance of the catheter, a dwell position number that directly reflects the dwell position distance and forward stepping source positioning.
Flexitron features scalable configurations with 10, 20 or 40 channels and is compatible with Nucletron applicators, Oncentra Brachy and the HDR Real-Time Prostate Solution.
