VisionRT develops market-leading technology for Surface Guided Radiation Therapy (SGRT). Because accuracy is vital during radiation therapy, radiation therapists take great care to ensure that patients are in the right position for treatment, to ensure that only the target area receives radiation and that healthy tissue is spared.
The technology AlignRT detects motion during radiation therapy and if the patient moves outside an acceptable position, by even a millimeter, AlignRT automatically pauses the radiation and begins again at the right time. VisionRT systems are in 37 of the top 50 US News “Best Hospitals for Cancer”.
Read more about how VisionRT is pioneering techniques to eliminate the need for radiation tattoos.
