Company announces SCINTIX as new product name for its flagship biology-guided radiotherapy technology

HAYWARD, Calif., Oct. 20, 2022 – RefleXion® Medical, a therapeutic oncology company pioneering biology-guided radiotherapy* (BgRT) as a new modality for treating all stages of cancer, today announced eight clinical abstracts evaluating the potential use and utility of its novel technology were accepted for presentation during the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) 2022 Annual Meeting, Oct. 23-26, in San Antonio. Additionally, ASTRO will serve as the setting for introducing SCINTIX as the new product name for RefleXion’s flagship BgRT technology and treatment, provided only through the company’s X1 platform.

“We are so pleased to once again have multiple posters and presentations highlighting the potential for our innovative SCINTIX technology in 21st-century radiation oncology practice.”

About RefleXion Medical 

RefleXion is a privately-held therapeutic oncology company developing SCINTIX biology-guided radiotherapy, which brings the potential to move beyond single tumor therapy to one day treating multiple metastatic tumors throughout the body in the same treatment session. SCINTIX radiotherapy incorporates positron-emission tomography (PET) data to enable tumors to continuously signal their location. SCINTIX technology will synchronize these data with the linear accelerator to direct radiotherapy to tumors with sub-second latency. The RefleXion X1 machine is cleared for the delivery of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT).

*The RefleXion® X1 is cleared for SBRT/SRS/IMRT treatments. SCINTIX™ biology-guided radiotherapy is limited by U.S. law to investigational use.
