ZAP-X gyroscopic radiosurgery: treatment planning, QA & self-shielding analysis

Presented by

Steve Sorensen and Georg Weidlich

About this talk

FDA-cleared in 2017, the ZAP-X gyroscopic radiosurgery platform is the latest innovation from John Adler, inventor of the CyberKnife and professor of neurosurgery and radiation oncology at Stanford University. Integrating a modern linear accelerator with gyroscopic mobility to deliver diverse non-coplanar beams, ZAP-X is a dedicated intracranial SRS system focused on ease-of-use, uncompromised patient safety and a world-class dose gradient. ZAP-X is built upon a first-in-kind self-shielded design that typically eliminates the need for radiation vaults. This new capability enables simple and cost-effective departmental expansions while also making SRS delivery available in locations that were previously not feasible (for example, physicians offices, outpatient centers and satellite facilities). Combined, ZAP-X strives to remove historical costs and complexity constraints to put SRS within reach of more providers and more patients.
