Radiation Oncologist, Co-Director“We feel more confident implementing SRS on TomoTherapy with the Aktina PinPoint system. The transition from thermoplastic masks was effortless and we immediately saw the improvements that the Aktina PinPoint system could provide. Patient’s were simply setting up better, without the need to monitor their changes throughout the course of treatment in order to fabricate new masks”

Chief Radiation Therapist“With the PinPoint system, we see a vast increase in terms of patient compliance compared to thermoplastic masks. The increased complexity and setup time has been negligible.”

 

About Advanced ROS

In June 2005, Advanced ROS became the first radiation center in the Northeastern U.S. and one of only 30 centers around the world to provide the TomoTherapy® HiArt treatment technique to their patients. http://www.aktina.com/news/advanced-ros-implements-pinpoint-with-tomotherapy/AdvacedROS , 25 mile north of New York City is a full service cancer treatment center providing Low and Low Dose Rate Brachyterapy, Prostate Seed Implant Therapy, Three-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy and IMRT as well as TomoTherapy HiArt.

Since 2005 Dr. James K Gerstley, the Radiation Oncologist and Co-Director of AdvancedROS, and his team have been seeking improved treatment accuracy for TomoTherapy based Frameless SRS over that capable with thermoplastic masks.
