Chester Ramsey, Ph.D., chef f,r medicinsk fysik vid TCSC f,rv,ntar sig betydande tidsbesparingar med Elekta VMAT, en ny behandlingsmetod d,r tum,ren bestr,las kontinuerligt medan str,lk,llan roterar runt patienten, dosintensiteten varieras och str,len form justeras utifr,n tum,rens form och l,ge. "Med den metod vi anv,nder idag, d,r vi bestr,lar tum,ren fr,n ett antal fasta vinklar, tar det normalt mellan 7 och 15 minuter att leverera den dagliga str,ldosen till varje patient. Vi bed,mer att med VMAT och Elekta Infinity, kommer vi att kunna minska den tiden till h,lften, utan att f,r den skull beh,va kompromissa med behandlingens kvalitet."

"Vid TCSC, b,rjade vi utforska enklare rotationstekniker f,r mer ,n 10 ,r sedan," f,rklarar Ramsey.
S,v,l v,ra l,kare som v,ra forskare ser mycket positivt p, v,r f,rst,rkta relation med Elekta", avslutar Dr, Ramsey.

Chester Ramsey, Ph.D., director of medical physics at TCSC expects the time savings with Elekta VMAT, a new treatment that targets tumors with high doses of radiation while protecting healthy tissue, to be dramatic. "With fixed-gantry IMRT delivery on other linear accelerators, it currently takes 7 to 15 minutes to treat most of our IMRT patients. We estimate that VMAT treatment delivery times with Elekta Infinity will be reduced by at least 50 percent, without compromising treatment quality."

"At TCSC, clinicians and researchers began using single rotation, constant dose rate volume modulated arc therapy more than 10 years ago," explains Ramsey. "The added capabilities of Elekta Infinity, such as simultaneous control of gantry rotation speed, collimator rotation and variable dose rate will advance our cancer treatment program to a new level."
TCSC currently treats 100-150 patients per day at three locations. Dr. Ramsey expects to treat up to 40 patients each day with Elekta Infinity, about half of which will be VMAT treatments for prostate, head and neck, lung, esophagus and brain cancers.
Dr. Ramsey says the new additions at TCSC will provide patients with a higher standard of cancer care than ever before. "The clinicians and researchers at TCSC are extremely excited about our new relationship with Elekta," he adds.
