Technische Universität München Hospital is First in Germany to Treat Cancer Patients with Accuray Radixact® System
The TUM hospital is focused on providing patients with personalized care using state-of-the-art technology that can deliver high-precision radiation therapy with minimal side effects. The specialized team of experts in radiation therapy and medical physics, and specially trained medical-technical radiology assistants, work closely with other disciplines within the university hospital, referring physicians, and other institutions, to ensure patients receive the best possible treatment for their specific type of cancer.
"Our radiotherapy team has been using the TomoTherapy platform for more than 10 years and have found it to be an essential component of cancer care at the hospital. When it came time to purchase a new radiation therapy device, our long-term positive experiences made the decision to upgrade to the Radixact System an easy one," said Univ. Prof. Dr. med.
State-of-the-art technology is designed to empower clinicians to improve their patients' care
- The system is fully-integrated with the Accuray Precision® Treatment Planning System and the iDMS™ Data Management System, enabling the clinical team to increase the ease and speed with which they create treatment plans and deliver precise radiation treatments
- The Radixact System delivers the same highly conformal and homogeneous dose distribution faster than the previous TomoTherapy platform, with a higher dose rate (1000 MU/minute) and imaging time that is 66 percent faster. A combination of higher dose output and faster image acquisition can shorten treatment times, while improving the patient experience
- A fully-integrated, automated adaptive solution, PreciseART™ Adaptive Radiation Therapy Software, makes adaptive radiotherapy simple and practical. The software enables physicians to easily decide when adaptation of radiation delivery during the course of treatment would be beneficial due to changes in tumor size and patient anatomy
- The CTrue™ IR (Iterative Reconstruction) image guidance software improves soft-tissue contrast and reduces noise, enhancing image quality, while maintaining the same low imaging dose and fast reconstruction time as earlier versions of the software. Patient workflows are also more efficient, facilitating the delivery of precise treatments more quickly, for more patients
"We are proud to partner with Professor Combs and her team as they expand access to the Radixact System to German patients," said Lionel Hadjadjeba, M.D., Senior Vice President, and Chief Commercial Officer at
