A “Radiographers life” in Radiotherapy… a monthly Blog by Duncan Hynd
 
Creating the UK’s first mobile radiotherapy service
I’m not sure when I first noticed I had the right levels of entrepreneurial spirit in my DNA to create my own products, services and companies in my chosen field of radiotherapy. When I say “chosen” I really mean that I got into it completely by accident as I am sure did others in the early eighties as I have already described in past blogs.

“Innovations in Radiotherapy”

 

Our new leading monthly industry profile of the latest products and services in radiotherapy

This month we feature: MOSAIQ® SmartClinic from Elekta
Get ready to get Smart

Elekta’s newest software solution for the delivery of complex precision radiation medicine treatment regimens, MOSAIQ Plaza®, is designed to manage a connected workflow for every moment of each patient’s journey.
A key feature of MOSAIQ Plaza is MOSAIQ® SmartClinic, which gives users the power to personalise and visualise their patients’ care pathways from any location. It was designed to achieve three main goals:
•          Refining the overall user experience. Through improving workflow visibility clinicians can now easily see patients’ health status and pinpoint where they are in their treatment at all times.
•          Enhance patient care. By creating a quicker and more efficient workflow, clinicians will have more time to spend speaking with patients and addressing their concerns.
•          Enable the collection of more data. The ability to more precisely collect patient information allows clinicians to gather more data that can ultimately be used to demonstrate value-based care and meet reporting requirements.
*MOSAIQ SmartClinic is not available in all markets

What has IoRT got to do with Robots?

As we have been looking at the world of AI recently in Oncology and also the field of Intra-Operative Radiotherapy (IORT) I ventured by accident into the world of IoRT and the potential of the Internet of Robots! 

It seems Robots become considerably more capable with internet connections. There is a growing view that the next evolution of the Internet of Things will be to incorporate them into the network – opening up thrilling possibilities along the way.

With robots increasingly used in the medical sector and advances in AI and machine learning, you may well be interested in this article

Cancer sufferers' lives saved by new radiotherapy machine on wheels

A REVOLUTIONARY radiotherapy machine on wheels is saving the lives of dangerously ill cancer sufferers. An eighth the size of a normal machine, the Mobetron can be taken into theatre so patients can be treated while surgeons operate.

This allows doctors to precisely target tumours and spare healthy surrounding tissue from harm. Experts at Southampton University, who are using the method, say it has produced 'exceptional' results. Studies show cancers are four times less likely to return after being zapped by the pioneering treatment. Patients who had run out of options, including some who were deemed terminally ill, have had cancers blasted into submission. Cancers treated include head and neck, pancreatic, endometrial, bladder and colorectal.
