South Pasadena Cancer Center Implements PinPoint SRS

South Pasadena Cancer Center, a state of the art outpatient cancer center, was among the first in the Los Angeles area to offer RapidARC treatments. The goal for their SRS/SRT program was to introduce a non-invasive technique with consideration to patient comfort without compromising accuracy.

South Padadena took delivery of their PinPoint system in February of 2011.

“Aktina’s Pinpoint has allowed us to implement a successful RapidARC based SRS/SRT program. We feel it does a great job minimizing interfraction and intrafraction uncertainties. http://www.aktina.com/news/south-pasadena-cancer-center-implements-pinpoint-srs/Moreover, the ease of setup makes it an ideal device for our busy clinic.”

“With the Aktina pinpoint, we’ve seen a major reduction in patient rotation on our cbct’s prior to treatment. It’s a major improvement over the traditional thermoplastic mask. Set-up time is minimal.”
