"The HKSH team is excited to expand on the Radixact System's capabilities with the addition of the ClearRT imaging technology. The ClearRT imaging modality provides enhanced image quality and better soft-tissue visualization. With this new feature, the scanning time was reduced by 77% for this case. The registration time required was also significantly shortened. The patient throughput can be increased with abbreviated treatment time, so more patients can benefit from this precise and advanced technology," said Dr.
ClearRT is a novel, helical CT imaging solution that, when integrated with Synchrony Real-time Motion Synchronization and Adaptive Treatment Delivery Technology, on the Radixact System provides a powerful tool that enable medical care teams to deliver extremely accurate and precise ultra-hypofractionated treatments, especially to tumors that move during treatment. ClearRT helical kVCT images can be used within the Accuray PreciseART® automated dose trending tool for clinicians to evaluate if plan adaptation would be beneficial, enabling the most personalized patient care.
