Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT, also known as SABR) requires high positional accuracy. AlignRT® can track motion with better than 1mm accuracy, and as a result is used for both standard and breath hold SBRT.
AlignRT has been shown to help treat SBRT patients with relatively little immobilization, which leads to enhanced comfort. In addition, patients may be treated without fiducial placement, while potentially avoiding repeat imaging during the procedure.
AlignRT can reduce setup time, including shifts after X-ray imaging, and allows users to set independent thresholds for breathing. The patient can be tracked in real time and radiation stopped if they are out of position, and using breath hold technique, planned treatment volume may be minimized and 4D planning eliminated.
