VIDEO: Varian Highlights its Advances in Radiation Oncology

Chris Toth, president, global commercial and field operations for Varian, takes a tour of Varian’s new product introductions and major initiatives highlighted at ASTRO 2017. These include:
  • The Halcyon system, a new platform for cancer treatment that simplifies and enhances virtually every aspect of image-guided volumetric intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). Halcyon is a powerfully intuitive platform designed to help improve and strengthen the fight against cancer and enable access to high quality care anywhere in the world.
  • The 360 Oncology care management platform, designed to integrate and coordinate patient care across the entire treatment and post-treatment journey. 360 Oncology brings together in a single platform, radiation, medical and surgical oncology, social services, primary care physicians, as well as the patient, to facilitate true collaboration and coordination.
  • The latest release of Varian’s Eclipse treatment planning software, incorporating both Multi-Criteria Optimization (MCO) and Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) Support.  MCO enables planners to look at tradeoffs in a treatment plan when different clinical criteria are varied, greatly enhancing control over optimization.  GPU support decreases the dose calculation and inverse planning optimization times, providing a significant leap forward in speed.
  • HyperArc high definition radiotherapy, technology that unlocks the potential of non-coplanar treatment strategies to usher in a new era of precision in the delivery of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS).

Visicoil MR: Enhanced MRI Visibility

The new Visicoil MR is a helically-wound, flexible linear fiducial marker. The Visicoil MR hollow core design and multiple sizes mitigates the CT artifact often created by traditional gold seeds, offering you clearer visualization of the tissue to aid in faster and more accurate contouring. Visicoil MR's linear flexible design fixates and remains stable in soft tissue, giving you the confidence in accurate marker localization. Visicoil MR is available in some of the smallest needle sizes available for fiducial markers, including 21g and 22g needles. The benefits of smaller needles are improved patient safety and comfort during implantation. The smaller needles may also allow for faster CT sim after implant and ultimately treatment for your patients. The new Visicoil MR with enhanced MRI visibility allows you to see the marker more easily in MRI, both in T1 and T2. This makes for easier and faster MR/CT fusion.

A Perspective on Enterprise Imaging Accessibility and Intelligence

In this video, NTT DATA Services describes enterprise imaging as the secure capture, retention, management, access and sharing of clinical images and associated data. The impact of dark data, disparate media and lack of consistent tools to access imaging are explored in terms of productivity and efficacy in a value-based care environment. This video discusses beyond the traditional VNA approach to explore ideas to consider in planning and how analytics as part of an enterprise strategy integrates into value-based care.

HYPERSCAN: Pencil Beam Scanning Delivered at Hyper Speed

Introducing HYPERSCAN , Pencil Beam Scanning Delivery HYPERSCAN enables tumor volumes to be scanned in a matter of seconds, benefiting from the MEVION S250's direct and efficient beam generation. The result is a fast Pencil Beam Scanning enabling robust Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy treatment delivery that is much less sensitive to patient and tumor motions, ultimately increasing the efficacy of the treatment procedure. The MEVION S250 proton therapy platform with HYPERSCAN allows you to treat with precision, accuracy and reproducibility at unparalleled speed with uncompromised beam quality. Designed for greater access by any size cancer care facility, the MEVION S250 significantly reduces the complexity, size, and cost associated with conventional proton therapy systems. The MEVION S250 is specifically engineered as upgrade-ready to continue providing the most advanced proton therapy treatment available today as well as tomorrow. Key Features : Field-Upgradeable; Streamlined Clinical Workflow with Full OIS Integration; High-Accuracy Beam Pointing with Submillimeter Position Tracking; Fast Volumetric and Layer Rescanning Capabilities; Supports Standard Gating Interface for Beam On/Off Hold
