Vision RT Receives FDA Clearance for Frameless Stereotactic Radiosurgery Module

SRS

The new AlignRT frameless SRS module has just received 510(k) clearance from the FDA. This offering utilizes Vision RT’s latest HD camera technology, includes an advanced calibration solution for ensuring the precise alignment of AlignRT with the beam iso-center, and the 3Degree head adjuster which allows precise corrections for pitch, roll and yaw rotations with open mask immobilization.

“We have been utilizing AlignRT on our frameless intra-cranial radiosurgery patients for over two years and have to date treated more than 150 patients” said Todd Pawlicki, M.D., director of medical physics at UC San Diego. “The new features included in the frameless SRS module take the product to a new level in both system accuracy and efficiency.”

Vision RT Limited has developed a novel approach to enhance the crucial process of patient setup and surveillance during radiation therapy for the treatment of cancer. Vision RT’s revolutionary products, AlignRT, GateCT and GateRT utilize a proprietary real-time 3D surface imaging technology to provide exceptional speed and accuracy designed to improve the efficacy and precision of the latest radiation treatments including IMRT, IGRT, SRS and SBRT.
