HDR Flexitron® treatment delivery

Safe, simple, intuitive brachytherapy workflow



Five simple features are the basis for the Flexitron way of working, introducing a new standard in treatment delivery

  • Standardized transfer lengths, less prone to human errors during reconstruction as there is only one indexer length.
  • Reference zero at entrance of applicator, no need to measure the distal tip.
  • Metric dwell position numbering, 1 mm step size in a treatment window of 400 mm.
  • Forward stepping results in a reproducible source positioning within 0.5 mm accuracy
  • Intuitive user interface, smooth navigation saves time.

Why Flexitron?

  • Simple quality assurance
  • 40-channel option for large implants
  • Connected to major oncology systems such as MOSAIQ®
  • Safe investment with future upgrade potential
