BrainLAB notches Arkansas install
Radiation therapy manufacturer BrainLAB has installed its ExacTrac X-ray 5D image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) system at the Central Arkansas Radiation Therapy Institute (CARTI) in Little Rock, Ark. CARTI is a nonprofit radiation therapy center with seven facilities located throughout Arkansas in Little Rock, North Little Rock, Conway, Mountain Home and Searcy.

The CARTI facility said that it is now treating as many as 215 cancer patients weekly through use of the BrainLAB IGRT system. According to the Munich, Germany-based firm, its IGRT technology uses high-resolution x-rays to pinpoint tumors seconds before treatment, automatically corrects any patient set-up errors, and tracks patient movement throughout the procedure.
