Features & Benefits
Faster treatment, more flexibility, more confidence
With its high dose rate, the optional Multiple-X™ feature significantly speeds up SRT and IMRT – drastically reducing patient-on-table time and increasing patient confidence. The 7 MV unflat beam provides great application flexibility, whether SRT, IMRT or 3D-CRT on your ONCOR. Find out more about the benefits of Multiple-X below.
High dose rates, faster treatment
With the Multiple-X feature, ONCOR™ linear accelerator provides a powerful dose rate of 2,000 MU/min, at 7 MV flatteníng-filter free. Multiple-X allows you to deliver typical 20 Gy sessions in 10 minutes or less.
- Reduce patient-on-table time up to factor 6, compared to traditional delivery techniques
7 MV flattening-filter-free (FFF) beam
Flattening-filter-free (FFF) beam is key to the high dose rate of 2,000 MU/min. With Multiple-X, your ONCOR offers a 7 MV FFF beam plus one flat beam.
- Use the power of high dose rate at the most common energy used
Application flexibility: Deliver SRT, IMRT, and 3D-CRT
Multiple-X offers great application flexibility. On the one hand, you can address the demanding needs of hypo-fractionated radiotherapy (SRS, SBRT). On the other hand, you can perform fast IMRT even for everyday cases and deliver 3D-CRT.
- Perform a multitude of applications with one delivery system: your ONCOR
Less risk of patient motion
Natural motion caused by coughing, swallowing or breathing can change the target position. A fast Multiple-X treatment reduces the risk of patient motion, as preventing unwanted movements is easier in 10 minutes than in 60.
- Faster treatment, easier motion management – also very beneficial for gating
More patient comfort and safety
For your patients, a shorter treatment time is more comfortable and safe. At the same time, your institution can benefit from significantly higher patient throughput for greater economic success. Thanks to Multiple-X.
- Higher patient comfort, higher throughput, higher efficiency
Great application flexibility
The optional Multiple-X™ feature allows you to perform a multitude of applications, all with one single delivery system: your ONCOR™ linear accelerator. On the one hand, you can perform hypofractionated radiotherapy for cranial and extracranial treatments (SRS, SBRT). On the other hand, you can deliver fast IMRT, even for everyday cases, and 3D-CRT.
Even faster IMRT
Delivering a modulated, high dose precisely to a complex target is the main task of IMRT. Multiple-X provides a high dose rate of up to 2,000 MU/min with 1 flattening-filter-free 7 MV energy. It allows you to deliver higher dose in less time, for faster IMRT – with no compromise in precision.
- High dose, high speed IMRT
- Shorter treatment time
- IMRT as fast and easy as 3D-CRT
Perform SRT with your ONCOR
Multiple-X enables you to perform linac-based SRT with your ONCOR and the upgrade to the high-precision, high-resolution 160 MLC; enabling SBRT and frameless cranial SRT. With the high dose rate of Multiple-X, ONCOR is now ready for stereotaxy.
- 2,000 MU/min for hypofractionation
- No additional equipment needed for SRT
- SRT and standard RT with one system
One flat beam for 3D-CRT
Multiple-X comes with one flat beam that enables 3D-CRT at 6, 10 or 15 MV. Thus, Multiple-X gives you great application flexibility: You can perform fast SRT and IMRT and still have your ONCOR stand by for conformal radiation therapy.
- Adapt the energy to your clinical needs
- High application flexibility
- All with one system
