This second innovation optimizes Sequential Intensity Modulation Technology (SIMTEC), which is used to automate typically routine clinical radiation oncology procedures.
The new system uses patented technology and is designed for the next generation of treatment techniques including intensity modulation, which allows tumors to be treated with higher dosages while minimizing the effects on surrounding normal tissues.
This approach to treatment delivery is called Intensity Modulation Radiation Therapy (IMRT).
Utilizing Nikon's patented LIMDOW(R) (Light Intensity Modulation Direct OverWrite) technology, the Beluga2 writes data in a single pass, making it up to twice as fast as conventional MO technology which needs a double pass for writing.
As conformal techniques progress to full dynamic intensity modulation the assurance of accurate target localization is more vital than ever.
Fox Chase Cancer Center was one of five centers worldwide to implement the first commercially available Intensity Modulation Radiation Therapy (IMRT) systems patented by Siemens in 1997.
ORBIT represents a clinical breakthrough in inverse planning IMRT technology because it is capable of handling very complex problems, such as the simultaneous optimization of intensity modulation and radiation beam directions, using both physical and biological treatment objectives.
Inverse treatment planning is the essential first step in being able to deliver Intensity Modulation Radiation Therapy (IMRT) with modern medical linear accelerators, and is designed to optimize radiation delivered to a tumor while minimizing the potentially harmful radiation absorbed by healthy organs.
The new system uses patented solid-state technology primarily designed to address techniques such as Intensity Modulation Radiation Therapy.
