AlignRT Used By all 15 of the top 15 “Best Hospitals For Cancer”
Vision RT’s AlignRT technology is being used by all 15 of the top 15 “Best Hospitals for Cancer” in the United States, according to the latest analysis by U.S. News and World Report.
The annual listing ranks more than 900 American hospitals according to statistics on cancer survival rates, patient experience and other data. The new, 2021-2022 rankings show even more uptake of Vision RT’s Surface Guided Radiation Therapy (SGRT) technology than in previous years. Every one of the top 15 ranked hospitals is using Vision RT systems, 19 out of the top 20 and a further 23 of the top 25.
“We’re so proud to see this,” said Vision RT’s CEO, Dr. Norman Smith. “When we started Vision RT twenty years ago and pioneered SGRT, our goal was for as many patients as possible to benefit from this technology, which improves accuracy, safety and patient comfort. It’s incredibly gratifying to see Vision RT’s systems embraced by so many of the top cancer centers in the USA and indeed, around the world. We won’t rest until every center is offering our tech and every patient is benefitting.”
Vision RT’s AlignRT technology uses proprietary 3D stereo camera units to monitor a patient’s skin surface in real-time and compare it to the ideal position with sub-millimetric accuracy. This ensures that radiation is delivered only when a patient is correctly positioned, enhancing safety and comfort. AlignRT is non-invasive and completely non-contact, an increasingly important advantage for cancer patients, who often have weakened immune systems.
Vision RT defines the standard of care in Surface Guided Radiation Therapy (SGRT). With +80 granted patents and +50 pending, Vision RT continues to innovate in the radiation oncology space and is committed to making SGRT the standard of care for all patients, worldwide. There are more than 1,900 systems installed worldwide.
