Accuray ESTRO37 Highlights: Advances in Software Solutions 

  • VOLO™ Technology for the CyberKnife System: a state-of-the art optimizer that simplifies the process of creating treatment plans, improves plan quality and enables more efficient exploration of the tradeoffs between treatment time and plan quality. Preliminary data indicates that the VOLO technology will provide a significant reduction in optimization time, as well as a reduction in overall treatment time. Technology under development for the CyberKnife System - not available for sale.
  • CTrue™ IR (Iterative Reconstruction) for the Radixact System: this new 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.
