AlignRT® Advance technology

What is AlignRT® Advance?

AlignRT® Advance is the market-leading Surface Guided Radiation Therapy (SGRT) system for tracking a patient’s position before and during radiation therapy, to help ensure a streamlined workflow for accurate treatment delivery.

AlignRT Advance makes treatment safer by using a contact-free technique to track a patient’s skin surface in real-time with sub-millimetric† accuracy and ensures radiation is only delivered when the patient is correctly positioned. If a patient moves, AlignRT Advance can automatically signal the treatment delivery system to pause radiation.

AlignRT Advance also benefits patient comfort, as it can eliminate the need for tattoos or other permanent marks, avoid the use of traditional closed mask or frame-based SRS, and reduce the need for pediatric anesthesia.

Today, Vision RT systems are installed in 9 of the 10 “Best Hospitals for Cancer” in the USA, and 80% of the top 50.* We have comprehensive interoperability and assured long-term collaboration with both major linac vendors.

Every patient, every fraction

AlignRT is safe, non-invasive and can be used for fast and accurate patient setup and monitoring for all forms of cancer, including breast, brain, lung, liver, sarcoma, head and neck, and other cancers.

Reduced Treatment Time

AlignRT is proven to save time and reduce imaging. Northside Hospital Cancer Institute (NHCI) reduced patient treatment time by 50%  due to less repeat imaging and more accurate initial setup with AlignRT.

“A Wise Investment” 

A recent oncology technology brief from the Advisory Board’s health care think tank (with 4,500 member organizations) recommended the use of SGRT as a “wise investment” for cancer centers.
