C-RAD secures order to equip radiation therapy clinic in Germany

September 4, 2014

Press release 2014-09-04 C-RAD has received an order for a total of four systems and a long-term service contract from the Clinic for Radiation Therapy and Radio Oncology in LÜneberg, Germany. The order comprises two Catalyst systems, a Sentinel 4DCT system and a Cyrpa Laser system for virtual simulation. The Clinic for Radiation Therapy and Radio Oncology is specialized in the treatment of abdominal cancer as well as head & neck and thorax tumors. This includes breast and lung cancer. The position of these tumors is dependent on respiratory motion, therefore an increasing number of customers use 4D techniques to offer an optimized treatment. The Catalyst system is based on a new generation of hardware and software platforms for high-performance optical surface scanning and augmented reality through re-projection. Advanced and highly optimized algorithms for non-rigid registration and deformable models enable real-time assessment of patient positioning errors before and during treatment delivery. The system calculates isocenter adjustments and with interfaces to major vendors, a completely integrated workflow is ensured. As part of the cooperation between C-RAD and Cyrpa, a unique product combination for 4D imaging and virtual simulation has been developed. All systems for virtual simulation and 4D imaging sold by C-RAD and Cyrpa will be delivered with the C-RAD software platform. Installation for this project will start in the beginning of the fourth quarter 2014. "With our current product portfolio, we offer an attractive package to our customers.
