Helical Gantry Design

The Radixact System was designed to revolve around you. The gantry – which holds the radiation source, or the linear accelerator (commonly called a LINAC) – physically revolves around your body during treatment to allow continuous 360-degree delivery of the radiation beams as the treatment table also moves. This not only enhances delivery precision, but largely eliminates the need to stop and reposition the patient during treatment.

Multi-Leaf Collimator

The collimator shapes the radiation beam and can modulate one beam into many smaller, narrow beamlets. Each beamlet can deliver a different dose of radiation. Different doses go to different parts of each tumor. The very large number of small, independent dose contributions is the key to the flexibility in creating highly personalized dose distributions. This allows your treatment team to deliver 3D image-guided intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT).

Integrated 3D CTrue Imaging

The Radixact System looks like a CT scanner because it is one. The daily imaging acquired before every treatment session allows treatment teams to see the target.

Synchrony Motion Tracking and Real-time Adaptation Technology*

The industry-exclusive Synchrony technology leverages the Radixact System’s fully integrated, real-time imaging to continually track patient and target motion — whether from breathing, slight patient movements or other anatomical shifts. The sophisticated Synchrony movement algorithms predict target movement to precisely synchronize treatment delivery with target movement. It has been designed to further boost treatment efficacy and help reduce the most common side effects.

*The Synchrony technology is an optional upgrade available for purchase by hospitals.

Important Safety Statement: Most side effects of radiotherapy, including radiotherapy delivered with Accuray systems, are mild and temporary, often involving fatigue, nausea, and skin irritation. Side effects can be severe, however, leading to pain, alterations in normal body functions (for example, urinary or salivary function), deterioration of quality of life, permanent injury and even death. Side effects can occur during or shortly after radiation treatment or in the months and years following radiation. The nature and severity of side effects depend on many factors, including the size and location of the treated tumor, the treatment technique (for example, the radiation dose), the patient’s general medical condition, to name a few. For more details about the side effects of your radiation therapy, and if treatment with an Accuray product is right for you, ask your doctor.
