Introducing AlignRT

The new standard in radiation therapy

Surface-Guided Radiation Therapy (SGRT) is an innovative technology which increases treatment accuracy and patient comfort during radiation therapy. AlignRT’s innovative 3D camera system tracks your body surface in real time to help clinicians pinpoint your radiation treatment to a specific area. Using SGRT can dramatically reduce the risk of side effects and unwanted secondary health conditions. It can also mean you won’t need radiotherapy tattoos or permanent marks.
