The following are just some of the products and services on display at ASTRO 2019.

Precision Laser Systems
Sun Nuclear — Booths 2624 & 3415

Sun Nuclear Precision Laser Systems -CT SIM+™ with RapidSIM™ Software and MICRO+™ - have been redesigned to optimize your clinical workflow. The CT SIM+™ moveable laser system supports your PET/CT Simulation workflow. Industry-leading precision and accuracy provide enhanced confidence for patient safety. A modern, unassuming design combined with accessible software allows your team to work unimpeded by physical or technological barriers. The MICRO+ fixed laser system supports fixed patient alignment for diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy, including MR Simulation and MR linacs. Preview the newly redesigned laser systems in ASTRO Booth 3415.

QLRAD — Booth 4835

QLRAD s RectalPro75 lowers toxicity, is patient friendly due to the anatomical shape and is caregiver friendly. Immobilizes the prostate, reduces movement to have a better day to day reproducibility due to a symmetrical balloon as well and spread the rectum to be in low dose area.

Varian ProBeam 360 Proton Therapy System
ProBeam® 360 Proton Therapy System
Varian — Booth 1405

The ProBeam® 360 Proton Therapy System from Varian is defining next-generation proton therapy. It offers uncompromised clinical capabilities, with ultra-high dose rates, a 360-degree gantry, and exceptional precision, all within a 30% smaller footprint. High dose rates are used today to reduce treatment time, manage motion, and can improve treatment plan quality and conformity. We expect next-generation proton therapy to employ even higher and ultra-high dose rates. The ProBeam 360° System features the most powerful particle accelerator available to treat cancer. It incorporates RapidScan™ technology, which revolutionizes motion mitigation by delivering each field within a single breath-hold for most patients.

Varian HyperArc High-Definition Radiosurgery
HyperArc High-Definition Radiosurgery
Varian — Booth 1405

HyperArc™ high-definition radiotherapy represents a significant step forward for linac-based radiosurgery. An intracranial radiosurgery solution that harnesses the power of Varian’s TrueBeam® and Eclipse™ platforms, HyperArc is a streamlined, endto- end solution that can be adopted by clinics worldwide to extend the benefits of radiosurgery to many more patients. Hyper-Arc SRS-specific optimization tools to optimize dose and treatment delivery. Dedicated algorithms enable an efficient workflow that can be completed in a conventional radiotherapy time slot—even when treating multiple targets simultaneously.

CIRS MRgRT Motion Management Phantom
MRgRT Motion Management Phantom
CIRS — Booth 4215

The integration of MR imaging in radiation therapy facilitates real time motion management. The CIRS MRgRT Motion Management QA phantom is designed to address such needs. The phantom is MR Safe due to piezoelectric motors and non-ferro-magnetic materials. The moving insert contains an organic shaped target (tumor) filled with gel, which is surrounded by the same background gel used to fill the body. The body represents a heterogenous background due to simulated lungs, liver, kidney and spine. All organs as well as the moving target, except for the lungs, offer ion chamber dosimetry capabilities. The simulated organs are anatomical in shape and have a life-like spatial relationship. The phantom allows users to calculate the Beam Latency specific to hybrid MRI-Linac systems.

Hitachi — Booth 1039
The world’s only synchrotron-based single room solution, the synchrotron accelerator technology allows for less shielding thus minimizing the overall size of the layout and the concrete cost to the building. Compared with our past layout, Hitachi has minimized and optimized the configuration yet utilized the identical gantry and accelerator technology which has been proven with our multi-room solution.

The combination of Hitachi’s 360 degrees compact rotating gantry and 30 x 40 cm irradiation field size enables users to widely treat many tumor sites. In addition, Hitachi’s spot scanning technology allows Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT) under fully-integrated Image guidance with gantry mounted isocentric CBCT. Our system is capable of interfacing with any motion management solutions, treatment planning system and oncology information system.

IBA — Booth 3028

IBA PROTEUS® family is the proton therapy platform of the future with a comprehensive set of tools for motion management, with a demonstrated spot-scanning proton arc therapy irradiation, and finally, with an ultra high-dose rate capability for flash research.

PROTEUS®ONE is the only compact single-room image-guided IMPT solution, allowing easy integration into a variety of healthcare settings. Smaller and more affordable than conventional multiroom proton systems, but with the same clinical applications.
