Excitement Surrounding AccuBoost® at American Brachytherapy Society (ABS) Annual Meeting
AccuBoost exhibits at American Brachytherapy Society's 2014 Annual Meeting.
Tyngsboro, Massachusetts (PRWEB) July 03, 2014
Advanced Radiation Therapy is pleased to recognize the substantial attention and excitement that the AccuBoost® technology received at the recent American Brachytherapy Society (ABS) meeting held in San Diego. In a number of oral and poster presentations, the very positive results of clinical experience with the technology, clinically referred to as non-invasive breast brachytherapy (NIBB), were presented.
One of the highlights of the meeting were observations made by Dr. Douglas Arthur, a leading oncologist in the treatment of breast cancer from Virginia Commonwealth University(VCU), on the future of Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation(APBI) as part of a panel presentation. Dr. Arthur indicated that the keys to the future of Partial Breast Irradiation were hypofractionation and the use of a non-invasive breast brachytherapy approach, which is the fundamental design approach of the AccuBoost technique.
Among the oral presentations at the ABS meeting, Dr. Jessica Schuster from VCU presented “Update of a Multi-Center Clinical Data Registry of Non-Invasive Image-Guided Breast Brachytherapy for Tumor Bed Boost” which expanded on the positive cosmetic and toxicity data of the group’s prior publication. In another, the results of a phase II study from the Brown University Oncology Group and Rhode Island Hospital by Dr. Jarek Hepel entitled “Non-invasive Image-guided Breast Brachytherapy (NIBB) for APBI” were delivered. This presentation reviewed very positive cosmetic and toxicity results from this APBI study.
AccuBoost is a Non-Invasive Breast Brachytherapy approach which allows clinicians to deliver a conformal, targeted radiation field while sparing dose to the heart, lungs, opposing breast and skin.
