ADVANCED RADIATION THERAPY
Customized Image-guided Radiation therapy
Every patient. Every Treatment.
Starting first with cervical cancer.
Advaray™ is an early phase medical device startup company based in Charlottesville, Virginia. Advaray™ is currently engaged in development of a hydrogel-based device to improve methods of image-guided pelvic brachytherapy. Our products will be inspired by unmet clinical needs in image-guided brachytherapy and designed to improve patient care from the perspectives of both patients and their physicians.
In addition to founder contributions, BrachyFoam has been fortunate to receive financial support in the form of grant funding from the National Cancer Institute and the Commonwealth Research Commercialization Fund.
