ZAP-X Gyroscopic Radiosurgery
This product is available only in Romanian market
As the first new dedicated radiosurgery technology developed in nearly half a century, ZAP-X looks to set new standards in surgical robotics, radiosurgical safety and efficacy, as well as patient comfort and convenience.
ZAP-X was designed to transform modern radiosurgery with a ground-breaking gyroscopic design which delivers hundreds of uniquely angled radiation beams with exquisite precision. The goal is to deliver full prescribed radiation dose to the target, while simultaneously avoiding surrounding healthy tissue.
To maintain extreme accuracy throughout the treatment, ZAP-X utilizes a fully integrated high-definition imaging system which continually detects and corrects potential target movements or shifts. This novel capability eliminates the historical use of invasive and often painful patient headframes during treatment delivery.
Using a multitude of unique angles to deliver the prescribed radiation dose, ZAP-X strictly controls incidental radiation exposure to critical structures such as the brain stem, eyes, and optic nerves. ZAP-X’s pioneering approach also reduces clinically significant healthy brain tissue exposure — thus mitigating the possibility of affecting patient cognitive function, as traditional whole brain radiation is documented to do.
Being the first and only “vault-free” radiation delivery technology, ZAP-X also eliminates the long-standing need for prolonged patient isolation in a 2–3-million-pound concrete bunker during treatment. Instead, ZAP-X now allows the clinical team, and in some instances, family members to be immediately adjacent the patient during treatment, creating a more confident and comfortable patient experience.
COMFORT & CONVENIENCE
- Simple outpatient procedure;
- No scalpels or incisions;
- No pain or discomfort originating from the SRS treatment;
- No invasive and often painful head frames;
- Most patients experience little or no recovery time;
- Patients often return to normal activity the same day as the procedure;
- “Vault-free” design eliminates the historical need for prolonged patient isolation in a concrete radiation bunker during treatment.
