Clinical Advantages of Elements with ExacTrac


Cory Knill, Lead Medical Physicist at Beaumont Health in Dearborn, Michigan, discusses his facility’s experiences implementing Elements with ExacTrac. He begins by giving an overview of plans generated with Elements and treated with ExacTrac compared to Gamma Knife, his institution’s existing system. Most strikingly he notes the reduced treatment time with Elements and ExacTrac. He then describes the clinical workflow they developed to move patients through the clinic, including extensive time for quality assurance. He discusses the various steps of the Elements planning workflow including Image Fusion, Distortion Correction, contouring with Anatomical Mapping and SmartBrush, and protocol-based treatment planning. He concludes with the clinical advantages of Elements with ExacTrac.
