Utility of ExacTrac kVp X-rays in Improving Patient Alignment during Intracranial Stereotactic Radiotherapy


Shirish Jani, PhD, from Sharp Healthcare in San Diego, California, discusses the utility of ExacTrac kVp X-Rays in improving patient alignment during intracranial stereotactic radiotherapy. He begins by outlining isocenter localization for Brainlab mask patients. He then delves into the study objective, which was to find a way to set up the patient with a localizer box and obtain anatomical verification for kVp X-Rays. He then reveals the results of the study, including data about Exactrac shifts for frame-based set up vs frameless.
