Miami Cancer Institute Treats First Cancer Patients with the Accuray Radixact(TM) SystemSUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 26, 2017 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Accuray Incorporated (ARAY) announced today that Miami Cancer Institute, a part of Baptist Health South Florida, is now treating patients using the new, uniquely "smart" Radixact™ Treatment Delivery System, fully integrated with the new Accuray Precision™ Treatment Planning System and iDMS™ Data Management System. Miami Cancer Institute selected the Radixact platform for its new, state-of-the-art treatment center because it offers leading edge, advanced treatment faster and expands access for more patients, while providing the foundation for anticipated clinical capabilities in the future.
The Radixact System is designed to be a highly reliable radiation therapy device which offers clinicians the opportunity to improve the cancer treatment experience throughout a patient's treatment journey, including when retreatment is necessary.
- The Radixact System features a more powerful linear accelerator, low-dose fan beam MVCT imaging and unique helical delivery technology, facilitating highly conformal and homogenous dose distributions to any target volume, while sparing normal healthy tissue, during each treatment fraction.
- The next generation treatment delivery software, control systems, service tools, and hardware components significantly increase the ease and speed and efficiency with which clinical teams can provide radiation treatments.
- A fully-integrated, simplified adaptive treatment planning solution informs precise treatment planning and mid-course decision-making, enabling the clinical team to adapt therapy to changes in tumor size, shape and location — as well as subtle changes in the location of organs and other healthy tissue.
