Toledo, OH – July 3, 2017: Bionix Radiation Therapy will be exhibiting at the 59th AAPM Annual Meeting and Exhibition from July 30-August 3, 2017 in Denver, Colorado.
The event takes place at the Colorado Convention Center where the medical physics community explore ideas
under the theme: “Connecting Our Pathways, Unifying our Profession”. Bionix Radiation Therapy is excited to
showcase industry leading solutions for brachytherapy at booth #4072, including the Anorectal Applicator (AR-1™)
Esophageal Applicator (E-App™) and AccuBoost® for image guided breast irradiation.
The AR-1 is a first of its kind, disposable brachytherapy applicator designed specifically for the treatment of anal and rectal cancers. The unique balloons design of the AR-1 allows exophytic tumors to press closer to the source catheter, resulting in the ability to deliver a very high dose to the tumor, while sparing healthy tissue. The AR-1 solution is a simple way to treat anal or rectal tumors in a way that cannot be achieved with external beam therapy. The E-App is a first of its kind, disposable brachytherapy applicator designed specifically for the treatment of upper GI cancers. Five independently operable balloons are designed to maintain the central position of the source catheter in both straight and curved anatomy allowing for closer proximity of the target to the source, while maintaining distance for healthy tissue. AccuBoost is a non-surgical breast conservation therapy approach that delivers a targeted dose of radiation directly to the tissue surrounding the tumor bed.
