Introduction of Real-Time Motion Synchronization Technology on the Radixact® System

Stereotactic radiotherapy for lung cancer has seen an increase in the number of cases treated, especially in elderly patients. In addition, the indication for stereotactic body radiotherapy(SBRT) for oligometastatic cases is rapidly expanding, as well as an increasing number of SBRT treatments in the abdominal region. For SBRT in the abdominal region and lower lung field, measures against the respiratory motion are important. Synchrony® is a technology that enables tracking and irradiation of moving targets. It is expected to guarantee the dose to the moving tumor and reduce the irradiation volume of normal tissues. However, to provide safe and reliable treatment, it is necessary to understand the Synchrony mechanism and its characteristics.

Total Body Irradiation (TBI): Migrating from Linac Based Open Field Technique to TomoTherapy®

Join Dr. Deepak Gupta as he explores the role of Total Body Irradiation (TBI) in the treatment of hematologic malignancies. The objective of this webinar is to explain the background & rationale of treatment, clinical application, and clinical experiences utilizing TomoTherapy®/Radixact® Treatment Systems. Dr. Gupta will share the experience of the Medanta Cancer Institute, TBI TomoTherapy program.

CyberKnife® Radiosurgery for Brainstem Lesions

During this webinar, “CyberKnife Radiosurgery for Brainstem Lesions”, Dr. Wang will present SRS, hypofractionated stereotactic radiosurgery, and staged SRS for the brain stem lesions from brain metastasis, glioma to cavernous hemangioma, etc with Huashan CyberKnife Center’s experiences. The objective is to share the efficacy and safety with CyberKnife for brainstem lesions treatment.

Ultra-Hypofractionated Partial Breast Radiotherapy

The webinar will focus on ultra-hypofractionated partial breast radiotherapy. Outcomes, ongoing trials, and future trends in accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) will be presented by Frank Vicini, M.D. Asal Rahimi, M.D. will share her clinical experience of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) for APBI. Mark Perman, M.D. and Debra Freeman, M.D. will share information on the protocol and data collection for the Registry for Performance and Clinical Outcomes in Radiosurgery (RPCR) APBI and Breast SBRT.

TomoTherapy® in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma

Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is highly prevalent in southeast of Asia, and it is predominantly treated by radiotherapy (RT). Intensity-modulated RT (IMRT) exhibits better dosimetric advantages over two-dimensional RT (2D-RT) or three-dimensional conformal RT (3D-CRT). It has significantly improved the local control rate of NPC and reduced acute and chronic toxicities. Helical TomoTherapy® was an emerging technology that integrates IMRT, image-guided intensity modulated radiotherapy (IGRT) and dose-guided intensity modulated radiotherapy (DGRT). TomoTherapy makes a perfect combination of linear accelerator and helical CT, breaking through many limitations of traditional accelerator. While rotating the irradiation target area, the treatment couch advances axially through the center of the stand, which is used to treat tumors efficiently and accurately. This webinar will focus on the treatment of NPC by TomoTherapy. Firstly, describing the therapeutic mechanism of TomoTherapy, the advantages and limitations of TomoTherapy in the treatment of tumors. This webinar will explain how to implement TomoTherapy in a patient with NPC. Finally, the experience of treating NPC by TomoTherapy in the Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center, Guangzhou, China will be shared.

Prostate SBRT and the PACE-B trial

Define the current best practice for prostate Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT). Describe the evidence underpinning prostate SBRT practice. Discuss the recently released data from the international PACE-B trial, which randomized patients between standard fractionation radiotherapy and five fraction SBRT.
