30 Presentations Highlight MRIdian’s Growing Role in Cancer CareJuly 21, 2017
CLEVELAND, July 21, 2017 — ViewRay, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRAY), makers of the world’s only FDA-cleared MRI-guided radiation therapy system with linear accelerator-based delivery,announced today that the company’sMRIdian® System is the focus of 30 abstracts selected by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) for presentation during their 2017 Annual Meeting. AAPM is the largest association of medical physicists in the world, and this year’s meeting will be held July 30-August 3 in Denver.
MRIdian-focused presentations at this year’s meeting include talks and e-posters that highlight topics such as online adaptive radiation therapy, stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), Monte Carlo dose calculation and quality assurance. Abstracts accepted by AAPM were provided by MRIdian users at 5different centers: University of California, Los Angeles; University of Miami; Washington University in St. Louis, Mo.; Henry Ford Health System; and University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wis.
Additionally, in ViewRay’s booth #4009, MRIdian users from University of California, Los Angeles, University of Miami, Washington University, University of Wisconsin and Henry Ford Health System will present on their firsthand experience. Topics to be addressed include the benefits of low-field MRI, plan quality assurance for adaptive radiation therapy and system implementation and commissioning.
Noteworthy in-booth talks include the first presentations on clinical experience with ViewRay’s second generation system, MRIdian Linac, given by clinicians from Henry Ford Health System, who recently began MRIdian Linac patient treatments. The Henry Ford team will present on their commissioning experience and the system’s imaging capabilities.
“We’re excited to be treating with MRIdian Linac and believe it’s one of the most significant advances in radiation oncology in decades,” said Dr. Indrin Chetty, Ph.D., Professor and Director of the Division of Medical Physics, Department of Radiation Oncology at Henry Ford Health System. “We have been extremely impressed with MRIdian’s image quality and speed of treatments. Moreover, the dose calculation accuracy has shown excellent agreement against measurements over a range of benchmark cases."
Clinical applications experts from ViewRay will also be available in the booth to demonstrate planning and delivery functionality of the system. The demos will showcase patient cases illustrating MRIdian image quality and industry-leading Monte Carlo dose calculation to support an on-table adaptive radiation therapy workflow.
