4D Imaging : Robotic radiosurgery combined with diagnostic quality computer tomography scanning in the treatment room
Accuray has introduced the industry's first solution that combines the power of robotic radiosurgery with either 3D or 4D diagnostic quality computer tomography (CT) scanning in the treatment room. With advanced imaging technology, clinicians can visualize the exact location of the tumor and its surrounding critical structures, immediately prior to treatment, to ensure the radiosurgery procedure delivers the treatment as planned. The 4D imaging system ensures clinicians have access to diagnostic quality images and 4D image data in unmatched acquisition time. Once positioned on the robotic couch, the patient undergoes a CT scan, which allows the clinician to quickly verify the treatment plan and the exact location of the tumor and adjacent critical structures. Without moving the patient from the treatment table, the RoboCouch System then transitions the patient from the CT scanner to the Cyber Knife System where the patient receives radiosurgery treatment.
