Image-Guided Brachytherapy (IGBT) uses cross-sectional image data to create 3D models. This allows clinicians to precisely plan and deliver radiation to the target while minimizing exposure to the surrounding healthy tissue.
To support image guided brachytherapy (IGBT), Varian offers the Varian BrachyTherapy Suite. This solution offers the ability to image and treat in the same room, streamline workflow, avoid patient movement and potentially reduce treatment errors due to applicator movement.
Most importantly, it is the ability to perform image guided treatments that set this solution apart from conventional techniques. The power of BrachyVision is harnessed to utilize the imaging data and generate a truly conformal plan that is then delivered by the VariSource or GammaMed afterloader.
