Protura remotely repositions patients with robotic 6 degrees of freedom to ensure sub-millimeter positioning accuracy. Protura's integration with the Varian Motion Management Interface automatically opens the relevant patient information in Protura software, drawing it from Varian's 4DTC System, automatically loads patient shift data to match Varian's On-Board Imager™ kV imaging system (OBI), and automatically imports the Varian pedestal location.
"The integration with Protura will provide our Clinac iX and Trilogy users with a safe and efficient workflow for 6DOF patient set-up corrections," said
"This integration represents each organization's strong commitment to provide radiation oncology professionals with advanced robotic 6 degrees of freedom technology," said
The first clinical use of the Protura and Varian integration has been the Universita Cattolica Sacro Cuore Policlinico (UCSC) "A.Gemelli," Managing Director Professor
"The recent integration with Varian allows our facility to set up patients with essentially no time added to our treatment workflow - while improving quality assurance with no manual data entry," said Dr.
