FDA Clears Brainlabs’ Radiosurgery Software Apps

Oct. 5, 2017

Two software applications from device manufacturer Brainlab, Elements Spine SRS and Elements Cranial SRS, were cleared for marketing by the FDA. The software helps physicians craft plans for spine and brain radiosurgery treatments.

The Elements Cranial SRS can create a radiosurgery plan for several cranial indications and it uses an integrated algorithm that allows for organs at risk and healthy tissue to be spared from treatment.

The Elements Spine SRS takes into account spine curvature variations to help ensure that radiation doses are delivered to the tumor and not the spinal cord.
