Radixact™ Treatment Delivery System Accuray Booth #2009
The Radixact System, comprised of Radixact™ Treatment Delivery System, Accuray Precision™ Treatment Planning System and iDMS™ Data Management System is a "smart" system that will enable faster, more efficient delivery of extremely precise treatment to a wider range of cancer patients. It features a more powerful linear accelerator, MVCT imaging and helical treatment delivery, so clinicians can apply highly conformal and homogeneous dose distributions to any target volume, while precisely sparing normal healthy tissue during each treatment fraction.

S250i MEVION Booth #10031
Mevion Medical Systems is a leading provider of proton therapy systems. The MEVION S250i with HYPERSCAN is elegantly designed to deliver high-powered, efficient proton therapy treatments. Built upon the world's only gantry-mounted proton accelerator and benefiting from Mevion's patented direct beam technology, the MEVION S250i overcomes pencil beam scanning uncertainties by delivering robust Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy at hyper-speed.

Biograph RT Pro Edition Siemens Healthineers Booth #10069
A comprehensive solution for radiation therapy planning on the Biograph mCT family of PET/CT systems from Siemens Healthineers, the Biograph RT Pro Edition helps physicians improve patient outcomes with fine image detail for better tumor delineation via the HD FoV Pro1 algorithm, which uses intelligent contour and attenuation estimation to improve visibility outside the scan FoV; and iMAR1, which is designed to yield images with reduced metal artifact distortion. The solution’s full suite of motion management technologies improves the ability to correlate tumor position during the respiratory cycle.

1 HD FoV Pro and iMAR are pending 510(k) clearance, and not yet commercially available in the United States or in all countries worldwide. Due to regulatory reasons, their future availability cannot be guaranteed. Please contact your local Siemens organization for further details.
