Vision RT is proud to announce the 510(k) clearance, launch and first clinical use of its new Version 6 platform for AlignRT. This innovation transforms the user experience for SGRT and is already being hailed as a step forward in terms of speed, performance and usability. In some workflows, the number of operations has been reduced by over 60%, advancing efficiency and ease of adoption. In addition, the Version 6 platform supports Advanced Camera Optimization, a new technique which delivers non-coplanar tracking accuracy of ≤ 0.3mm / ≤ 0.2°, including the most challenging clinically realistic configurations; couch rotations, pod occlusions and deep isocenters. 

Jacqui Dorney, Specialist Service Lead at GenesisCare UK, has been involved in the first clinical use of the new platform. “We have been using Version 6 of the AlignRT software for the last few days and have treated 25 patients and over 100 fractions so far. Initially, we were planning to trial this new release for a limited period before moving back to our tried and tested Version 5. However, we have found Version 6 to be so fast, intuitive and powerful that we have decided that we cannot give it up!” 

Dr Adrian Barrett, Vice President of New Product Delivery at Vision RT, said “Vision RT now has a growing team of over 60 engineers innovating to continue our leadership within SGRT. Version 6 is a new platform for our market-leading AlignRT product, designed to deliver an even faster, and easier-to-use experience. We are extremely encouraged by the feedback we have had from users, and I want to thank the many radiation therapists, physicists and oncologists who gave input to this major innovation.”
