Brainlab released its ExacTrac Infrared Monitoring, an add-on device to existing treatment machines for monitoring patient positioning during radiation therapy treatments, at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) annual meeting last week in Philadelphia.

The ExacTrac Infrared Monitoring ceiling-mounted device tracks the patient position throughout treatment delivery, according to Westchester, Ill.-based company. The technology uses infrared tracking to monitor the patient’s position and check the reference position. ExacTrac Infrared Monitoring can be used during treatment of various indications, including cranial, head and neck, prostate, lung, liver and spine tumors.
