Non-invasive alternative

Elekta Xoft offers patients and physicians a simplified alternative to traditional six-week radiation therapy for early-stage breast cancer treatment. With the Xoft® Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx®) System®, delivery of radiation therapy in the operating room at the time of surgery is possible with intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT).

IORT may be utilized to deliver a single fraction or boost dose for breast cancer treatment. Indications currently under investigation include prostate, pancreatic and colorectal cancers.

The Rigid Shield may be used internally or externally, such as during IORT when the treatment site is surgically exposed.

Combined with the comprehensive capabilities of Elekta Xoft, the Axxent Rigid Shield offers an attractive shielding option for physicians and patients for improved flexibility, precision and personalization in the targeted treatment of breast cancer.
