April 12, 2024 — RTsafe, a leading provider of quality assurance products and services in stereotactic radiosurgery, and ZAP Surgical, the developer of the ZAP-X Gyroscopic Radiosurgery platform, have announced a partnership to promote advances in cranial radiosurgery. Under the terms of the agreement, RTsafe's dosimetry phantom based on true-to-life human anatomy will be seamlessly integrated into ZAP Surgical's existing and future global installations. This strategic alliance underscores a shared commitment to excellence, as both organizations strive to deliver optimal patient safety and value to healthcare providers and cranial radiosurgery patients alike.

The cornerstone of this partnership lies in RTsafe's development of a specialized phantom designed specifically for use with the ZAP-X platform that incorporates a unique vault-free design that typically eliminates the need for costly shielded treatment rooms. This new RTsafe phantom will be officially presented at the International Stereotactic Radiosurgery Society 2024 meeting, in New York City, on May 12th. This innovative solution will play a pivotal role in commissioning, training, educational initiatives, confidence building, periodic quality assurance protocols, and patient-specific quality assurance, reinforcing the state-of-the-art capabilities of ZAP-X.

Evangelos Pappas, Founder of RTsafe, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating, "We are thrilled to join forces with ZAP Surgical in this transformative endeavour. By harnessing the power of our advanced phantom technology, we aim to elevate the standard of care in cranial radiosurgery and to highlight the unparalleled value of the ZAP-X platform”.

Renowned neurosurgeon and Founder of ZAP Surgical, Dr. John Adler, echoed Pappas's sentiments, emphasizing the impact of this partnership on the future of radiosurgical practice. "At ZAP Surgical, we are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of innovation in the field of radiosurgery. By integrating RTsafe's cutting-edge phantom technology into our systems, we are reinforcing our commitment to excellence and ensuring that clinicians worldwide have access to the most advanced tools for delivering exceptional patient care." The collaboration between RTsafe and ZAP Surgical is a testament to the power of innovation and collaboration in healthcare.
