Elekta Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for XiO Software to Plan Spot Scanning for Proton Therapy
Date:12/3/2010

ATLANTA, Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta recently received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its XiO® treatment planning software to plan spot scanning. Spot scanning is a proton therapy delivery method that involves constructing a highly conformal dose to the tumor by using thousands of small individual beamlets instead of a single large beam. This approach enables Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT).

XiO, Elekta's 3D / Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) treatment planning platform, offers proton therapy centers another option to plan proton deliveries. XiO provides unique tools to facilitate rapid positioning of spots to construct the dose to the tumor, in addition to a proven dose calculation algorithm to optimize each beam.

"The completely automated optimization of the spot deliveries allows clinicians to produce treatment plans with a high degree of conformality around the target, therefore, minimizing the dose to adjacent healthy tissue," says Virgil Willcut, Vice President of Product Management, Physics & Research for Elekta Treatment Planning. "Spot scanning especially is important for pediatric patients since it provides better normal tissue sparing and lower neutron doses than conventional proton planning, both of which reduce the chance of radiation induced side effects for a cohort of patients that are still developing and have long life expectancies."

In clinical use for nearly a decade, XiO is in use at more proton facilities than any other commercial vendor with a similar product. To learn more about Elekta's XiO treatment planning software, visit www.elekta.com/PT-treatmentplanning.
