Expands patient-first treatment like no other system in the worldImage guided, intensity modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT), featuring best-in-class clinical workflows and highly conformal and homogenous treatments enabled by a unique ultra-fast multi-leaf collimator (MLC). The Radixact® System shapes radiation to the tumor while sparing normal, healthy tissue.
- Longest treatment fields in the industry: Eliminates multiple isocenters and field junctions that are time-consuming to plan and deliver and can lead to hot and cold spots.
- Simultaneous irradiation of multiple target volumes.
- 3DCRT and IMRT modes: Same straightforward treatment planning process for routine and complex cases.
- 360-degree treatment delivery provides highly conformal, uniform dose distribution while minimizing dose to surrounding normal structures.
- TomoEDGE™ Dynamic Jaws dynamically conform to the target in the craniocaudal direction, producing sharp dose fall-off for precise sparing of normal tissue and increased throughput.
- Fastest leaf speed in the industry produces more modulation compared to other IMRT delivery techniques.
