LinaTech captures the attention and interest of a lot of visitors with its GPU based Monte Carlo Treatment Planning System at ASTRO trade show in Atlanta, Georgia USA


September 22-25, 2013

Atlanta, Georgia USA, September 22-25, 2013 – LinaTech LLC was one of the exhibitors at the 55th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), the premier scientific meeting in radiation oncology which brings together more than 11,000 attendees including oncologists from all disciplines, medical physicists, dosimetrists, and radiation therapists from around the world.

ASTRO was a great opportunity for LinaTech to complement its leading edge radiotherapy technologies with the launch of its GPU based Monte Carlo (MC) Treatment Planning System (TPS) to add to its hardware and software solutions engineered to provide superior and cost effective products for the treatment of cancer with radiotherapy.

While LinaTech’s Pencil Beam and Convolution algorithm based Treatment Planning System (TPS) provides a complete package of planning modalities including conformal, forward & inverse planning techniques, and dynamic sliding ARC with easy-to-use planning tools, the addition of the Monte Carlo calculation algorithm provides far greater accuracy in calculating the 3-D dose distributions which is essential for the effective treatment of head & neck, lung, and esophagus cancer cases. LinaTech demonstrated the accuracy and speed of its MC based TPS during ASTRO and captured the attention and interest of many visitors.
