August 3, 2015 — Leading radiosurgery experts presented their experiences with Automatic Brain Metastases Planning software at the Novalis Circle Symposium during this year’s American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) annual meeting and exhibition. The software consistently and rapidly generates radiosurgery plans, allowing clinicians to efficiently treat up to 10 multiple brain metastases in one session while helping minimize radiation exposure to healthy surrounding tissue.

Automatic Brain Metastases Planning is part of Brainlab Elements a la carte software modules to support and facilitate neurosurgery and radiation oncology treatment planning. In April, Brainlab announced the completion of its automated stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) planning toolkit with the introduction of new Elements for brain and spine at the European Society for Radiotherapy & Oncology (ESTRO) Forum in Barcelona.

Speakers included Niko Papanikolaou, M.D., from the University of Texas in San Antonio, who discussed dosimetric analysis and quality assurance validation for Automatic Brain Metastases Planning; Zhiheng Wang, M.D., from Duke University Medical Center, who addressed the impact of rotational correction on single isocenter stereotactic radiosurgery treatments; and Timothy Solberg, M.D., who gave an overview on Novalis Certified, an independent audit which aims to ensure quality and patient safety in radiosurgery.
