Brainlab releases VersaHD high-res planning algorithm
Brainlab said today it launched a new high-res planning algorithm within its Brainlab Elements software to improve radiation dose conformity for treating brain tumors, and added that the algorithm is a result of its strategic collaboration Elekta (STO:EKTA B). The Munich-based company’s Elements system operates with Elekta’s Agility multileaf collimator to compensate for the width of selected leaves and allow for better conformation to tumor shapes, and to reduce radiation dosing to organs at risk. The new algorithm in the Elements software allows support of virtual leaf width capability with Agility on th...

A study links soil metals with cancer mortality
(FECYT - Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology) Spanish epidemiologists and geologists have found associations between esophageal cancer and soils where lead is abundant, lung cancer and terrains with increased copper content, brain tumor with areas rich in arsenic, and bladder cancer with high cadmium levels. These statistical links do not indicate that there is a cause-effect relationship between soil type and cancer, but they suggest that the influence of metals from the earth's surface on the geographical distribution of tumors should be analyzed.
