Patients deserve short-term, non-invasive therapy with fewer side effects and better quality of life. , whether they face complex or more common forms of cancer. ViewRay is committed to providing this to every patient requiring treatment. »
Radiation therapy treatment works by delivering radiation to tumor sites. However, clinicians must limit the amount of radiation delivered to the tumor to preserve surrounding healthy tissues and organs. With conventional technology, clinicians do this by spreading the amount of radiation given over several weeks by having the patient come in for 20-30-40 treatments. In short, they face a trade-off between safety and efficiency; as well as quality of life depending on the treatment schedule.
The MRIdian system provides oncologists with exceptional anatomical visualization through diagnostic-quality MRI images and the ability to tailor a radiation treatment plan to the targeted cancer with the patient on the table. This combination allows physicians to set narrow treatment margins to avoid unnecessary radiation exposure to vulnerable organs at risk and healthy tissues and allows the delivery of ablative radiation doses in five treatment sessions or less, without relying on implanted markers. By providing real-time, continuous tracking of the target and organs at risk, MRIdian enables automatic radiation beam triggering if the target moves outside of user-defined margins. This allows the prescribed dose to be delivered to the target, while sparing surrounding healthy tissue and critical structures, minimizing the toxicities typically associated with conventional radiation therapy.
Nearly 25,000 patients have been treated with IRMdian. Currently, 53 MRI systems are installed in hospitals around the world where they are used to treat a wide variety of solid tumors and are the subject of many ongoing research efforts. MRIdian has been the subject of hundreds of peer-reviewed publications, scientific meeting abstracts and presentations.
