What to Expect
An effective, less disruptive treatment option
The Radixact® System provides an alternative (or complement) to surgical intervention, delivering an advanced, non-invasive form of radiation therapy called image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT). The unique design and capabilities of the Radixact System help to maximize radiation delivered to the target(s) – while helping to minimize radiation dose to surrounding healthy tissues. The result is highly personalized, highly precise treatment designed to significantly reduce the risk of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary side effects that too often disrupt the lives of cervical cancer patients during and after treatment. The Radixact System is one of the most integrated, advanced systems for comprehensive cancer treatment available today, enabling precise delivery of treatments for cervical cancers at various stages of the disease.
Radixact treatment is an outpatient procedure that does not require incisions or general anesthesia. Most patients will not require hospitalization or a long recovery period. Radixact treatment also eliminates the inconvenience and risk associated with radioactive seed implants.
REDUCED INCIDENCE OF SIDE EFFECTS
The Radixact System delivers the required radiation dose to the target with high precision, which can significantly reduce the most common side effects of radiation therapy.
A faster return to everyday life
With Radixact treatment, the majority of patients can continue normal activity during and immediately following treatment. Just as important, the Radixact System reduces the risk of common side effects – protecting quality of life both during and after treatment. In some circumstances, side effects may occur.
