Orders of Four C-RAD Systems from US Customers

June 23, 2014

Press release 2014-06-24 C-RAD received two orders for in total four systems from customers in the US. Both orders include a Catalyst HD™ and a Sentinel 4DCT™ System. Catalyst HD™ is based on the patented C-RAD technology. With a unique arrangement of multiple 3D cameras and newly developed software, the system is convincing with superior performance for all treatments where couch rotations are applied. The Catalyst HD™ has been developed to fulfill the clinical requirements of specifically high accuracy for motion control in stereotactic radiosurgery. All existing C-RAD interfaces for respiratory gating and for treatment couch control for Varian and Elekta are compatible with the Catalyst HD™. Software modules for Patient Setup and Positioning, Motion Monitoring during treatment and Respiratory Gating are adapted to the system. Stereotactic radiosurgery is a form of radiation therapy where the focused x-ray beam is delivered with very high accuracy into a small volume within the body. Therewith tumor tissue can be treated efficiently with minimizing the dose delivered to healthy tissue around the tumor. This treatment technique is especially used for head and neck treatments. Tim Thurn, CEO, C-RAD AB: “The Catalyst HD enjoys a high interest among our customers. Most of the new developed sales projects on the important US market include the Catalyst HD system. C-RAD will present the system at the AAPM conference in Austin, TX in the second half of July. The overall order intake during the second quarter is developing well.” About C-RAD C-RAD develops new and innovative solutions for the use in advanced radiation therapy.
