Image-guided therapy took a step forward May 20 with the introduction by Nomos of an ultrasound real-time imaging/positioning technology called ImageSync. Built into Nomos' new BAT SXi image-guided therapy technology, ImageSync provides a stream of ultrasound images that can be utilized in real-time to localize cancer targets prior to radiation therapy.
