CLEVELAND, Aug. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ViewRay, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRAY) announced today highlights from the 2017 Annual
The company's MRIdian® System was the focus of 30 abstracts selected by AAPM including several talks describing the significant advantages of daily on-table adaptive radiation therapy and its positive clinical impact on treatment. MR-guided on-table adaptive therapy, which is currently possible only with the MRIdian System, allows for dose escalation for SBRT treatments and dose de-escalation in cases where the critical structures are too close to the tumor.
The AAPM Scientific Session talks also highlighted MRIdian's fully integrated workflow for adaptive therapy, which incorporates complete Monte Carlo dose replanning to account for changes in the shape and position of the tumor and adjacent organs in less than two minutes. More than 2,000 on-table adaptive fractions have been delivered using the MRIdian System, attesting to its growing adoption and clinical value.
ViewRay featured a number of presentations in the company's booth given by MRIdian users from five top cancer centers: Henry Ford Health System in Metro Detroit; University of California, Los Angeles; Washington University in St. Louis; University of Wisconsin; and University of Miami. Below are highlights from these talks:
