Xoft Treatment System Combines High Dose Rate, Low Energy

Xoft Inc. is developing leading-edge new technologies for the practice of radiation oncology through Electronic Brachytherapy, which utilizes proprietary miniaturized X-ray tube technology.

The Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy System, Xoft's first treatment system, is currently being used in accelerated partial breast irradiation for the treatment of early-stage breast cancer. This solution provides a therapeutic dose of intracavitary radiation directly to the region at risk without the complex handling and resource logistics necessary when performing brachytherapy using radioactive isotopes.
