- Exciting New Solutions for Precision Cancer Treatment on Display During ESTRO29 in Barcelona, Spain

Nucletron, a leading provider of state of the art radiotherapy solutions for cancer treatment, today announced a large number of exciting innovations for precise cancer treatment that will be in the spotlight during ESTRO29 in Barcelona. The company will be showcasing the latest developments in cancer treatment solutions for both brachytherapy and external beam.

The complete program for prostate brachytherapy

Nucletron Prostate Solutions is the first complete program for prostate brachytherapy, integrating state-of-the-art Oncentra software and high-class brachytherapy equipment. Next to years of evidence confirming favorable cure rates, these advanced solutions shorten overall treatment times, while reducing risks of impotence and incontinence. Available for two treatment types - Oncentra(R) Seeds for permanent low dose rate (LDR) seeds implantation and Oncentra(R) Prostate for high dose rate (HDR) - it offers the best choice of treatment for many prostate cancer patients.

Breast brachytherapy: See what you treat, treat what you see

AccuBoost(TM) is the first technology to use HDR brachytherapy treatment of breast cancer in a non-invasive way, utilizing real-time mammography imaging to accurately target the radiation dose directly to the lumpectomy site. AccuBoost can be delivered either prior to or after the main external beam portion of a woman's breast irradiation treatment.

Pioneering developments in gynecological brachytherapy

Whether you use CT, MR or any other imaging modality, Nucletron can offer a suitable applicator for gynecological brachytherapy. The newest in our range of applicators are the Multichannel Vaginal Cylinder for asymmetrical and advanced vaginal and cervical tumors, and the Rotterdam Cervix Applicator, designed for fast and reproducible treatments. These two applicators give ultimate precision in gynecological brachytherapy.

Optimal speed and precision in treatment planning

Oncentra(R) 4.0 is the newest version of Nucletron's multi-modality treatment planning system for brachytherapy and external beam treatment. Oncentra v4.0 is the first ever platform to use GPU technology to increase plan accuracy and reduce planning times from hours to minutes, especially for VMAT calculations. New Oncentra Brachy features, such as applicator modeling, library plans and output manager, are specially developed to make brachytherapy treatment planning easier and faster.

Flexitron numbers talk

The Flexitron afterloader takes brachytherapy to a new level. It helps to shorten preparation time and reduces the chance of human errors with its straightforward Absolute Source Positioning. It sets a new safety benchmark, with features like the precise source drive. It's not just words, Flexitron's numbers talk and improve safety!
