Accuray to Unveil VOLO Ultra at ASTRO 2021

By News Release


Accuray is showcasing multiple forward-looking radiotherapy solutions at ASTRO 2021, all designed to enhance the treatment experience for medical care teams and their patients. The American Society for Radiation Oncology's (ASTRO) 63rd annual meeting will take place October 24-27, 2021, in Chicago. Accuray will be in attendance at booth #403, sharing information on how its novel CyberKnife and Radixact platforms and advanced software solutions can help expand the curative potential of radiation therapy.

“Accuray is thrilled to attend ASTRO 2021 and have the opportunity to engage with our valued customers. We are focused on positioning them for success in an ever-evolving healthcare environment,” said Suzanne Winter, president of Accuray. “Our artificial intelligence (AI)-driven Synchrony 4D dynamic delivery technology on the CyberKnife and Radixact Systems, ClearRT imaging, and VOLO Ultra are making it easier than ever to provide precise and accurate radiation treatments - but we aren't stopping here. We continue to pursue the development of game-changing innovations that have the potential to bring a paradigm shift in radiation delivery and patient outcomes.”

Accuray ASTRO 2021 Highlights: Unique Advances in Software and Imaging Solutions

  • VOLO Ultra: VOLO Ultra is the latest evolution of our planning solution, the Accuray Precision Treatment Planning System. It helps accelerate Radixact and TomoTherapy treatments so clinicians can treat more patients each day. It includes a state-of-the-art optimizer with a modern and fast gradient-based algorithm, designed to provide optimal plan quality for every treatment.
  • ClearRT helical fan-beam kVCT imaging: ClearRT is a one-of-a-kind imaging solution integrated with the Radixact System - a true workhorse system - to produce exceptional diagnostic-like quality CT images, quickly and cost-effectively. ClearRT offers the widest and longest field of view enabling clinicians to see more, know more and do more, and providing a new level of precision and accuracy in the treatment of almost any indication that would benefit from radiotherapy, from the simplest to the most complex.
  • RayStation for the CyberKnife robotic radiosurgery platform: RayStation treatment planning support for the robotic CyberKnife M6 and S7 Systems will help enable clinicians to create treatment plans for these advanced systems and other conventional radiotherapy devices using the same software solution. RayStation will make it easier to seamlessly integrate the CyberKnife System within a radiation oncology department, increasing access to the only device capable of delivering sub-millimetric stereotactic treatments anywhere in the body with speed, efficiency and accuracy - all without the need for human intervention.

Symposium: Go ITV-free and Gating-free with Accuray

  • October 26th, 2021, at 12:15 pm CT in Theater 1, Innovation Hub
  • Hear how Synchrony enables ITV-free and gating-free approaches to stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) treatments. Three practitioners will share their real-world clinical experiences using Synchrony with the Radixact and CyberKnife Systems.
