First Xoft Axxent system put to clinical use
WellStar Kennestone Hospital and The Breast Center in Marietta have completed treatment of the first breast cancer patient with a new therapy for early stage breast cancer. Designed to help reduce recurrence of breast cancer, the Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy System from Xoft Inc., uses a miniaturized x-ray source that can deliver localized and targeted radiation treatment in virtually any clinical setting under the supervision of a radiation oncologist. WellStar Kennestone is the first medical center in the world to use an Axxent System.
