Resonant Exhibits Next Gen Radiotherapy System at ESTRO

August 28, 2009 - Resonant Medical, an innovator in soft tissue planning, image-guidance and adaptive radiotherapy products, will be exhibiting the next generation of its multi-anatomy Clarity System at the 10th Biennial Meeting of The European Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncologists (ESTRO), being held in Maastricht, Netherlands.

Clarity provides soft tissue hybrid imaging, integrated within the CT Suite. Clarity also provides structure based image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) during daily radiation treatments. The next generation version of Clarity also supports adaptive radiotherapy by alerting physicians of changes in a target structure’s precise location, shape and size and enabling them to use this information to adapt the patient’s treatment plan as necessary. Additionally, the MAASTRO Clinic in Maastricht has begun offering the Clarity System for its prostate and breast treatments.

During the radiation treatment planning phase, Clarity allows physicians to automatically compare CT and 3D ultrasound images acquired at the same time with the patient in the same position, which can dramatically improve the treatment planning workflow when compared to CT alone. The Clarity System is based on daily auto-contouring and true 3D anatomy changes during the entire course of treatment, ensuring rapid and precise daily delivery to the intended target while sparing healthy tissue. Clarity’s 3D ultrasound imaging is a gentle, non-invasive technology most often associated with pregnancy and providing images of babies. In addition to adding the Clarity System to treatment for breast and prostate cancer patients, physicians at MAASTRO will be exploring how the system may improve treatment planning and targeting in GYN, bladder and liver cancer patients.
