IGRT (Image-Guided Radiation Therapy) has been the gold standard for radiation therapy since 2000. Varian has developed the next-generation image solution called HyperSight, which provides a cross-generational imaging solution for IGRT treatment. HyperSight was introduced by Varian at the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) annual meeting in October 2022. It enables the acquisition of CT-like images within the treatment room and completes high-quality HyperSight imaging in just 6 seconds. This groundbreaking advancement in precision and speed offers unprecedented progress in radiation therapy. Furthermore, it paves the way for future Offline Adaptive capabilities, ensuring epic improvements in image quality, precision, and speed.
Features / strengths
• Breakthrough IGRT treatment limitations with CT-grade image quality: Provides functions to eliminate metal artifacts and motion artifacts, enhancing soft tissue contrast.
• Rapid 6-second high-quality imaging, reducing table time: The gantry's increased movement speed by 50% allows patients to undergo breath-hold IGRT treatment, effectively reducing motion artifacts while minimizing the time spent on the treatment table.
• Maximum 70cm FOV imaging, AEC exposure, and reduced patient dose, enhancing personalized precision radiation therapy quality.
• Linear accelerator equipped with CT simulation and positioning capabilities: If a patient requires repositioning, there is no need to wait as the scan can be performed directly on the treatment table.
• Expands Offline Adaptive treatment technology, enabling efficient completion of Same Day Treatment.
• No frequent machine changes required; staff can quickly perform treatment and imaging tasks, easily and seamlessly accomplishing the physician's instructions on a single machine.
