With the Axxent® Cervical Applicators1 enable radiation oncologists to treat cervical cancer with the Xoft® Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx®) System®. The cervical applicator complements Xoft’s Axxent Vaginal Applicators for endometrial cancer treatment, allowing Xoft to now offer a range of gynecological cancer treatment options.

Benefits of cervical cancer treatment with the Xoft System include:

  • No radioactive isotopes
  • Minimal room shielding requirements
  • Point A coverage
  • Lower dose to critical structures
  • Patient transport to treatment vault not required after imaging
  • System portability
  • Two different angled Colpostat sets to accommodate female anatomy
  • CT compatibility and MR conditional       2

Design and Dosimetry

The Xoft cervical applicators were designed to maintain dose coverage to Point A by using titanium in the applicator walls to filter out low-energy radiation from the source. Dose volume histograms confirm that the Xoft 50 kV source has comparable PTV coverage to Ir-192, with lower dose to critical structures.
