The FDA has approved a novel breast-specific stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) device known as GammaPod as a treatment for patients with early breast cancer, based on findings from a 17-patient study.

The device was approved under the 510(k) premarket notification pathway. Xcision Medical Systems developed and will market GammaPod. The company was launched out of the University of Maryland following a .5 million SBIR grant from the National Institutes of Health.
