First orders of Catalyst systems to the French market
The C-RAD’s distributor in France, Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG has placed first orders for two Catalyst systems for immediate installation. One system has been ordered by Centre de Radiotherapie des Ardenne, Charleville Mezieres and the other by Institut du Cancer Courlany, Reims. Both sites are equipped with linear accelerators from Varian. The Catalyst systems will be installed in the last week of June.
C-RAD AB and its five fully owned subsidiaries are all active in the field of radiation therapy. The Catalyst system is based on a new generation of hardware and software platform 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 the real-time assessment of patient positioning errors before and during treatment delivery. The system is calculating iso center adjustments. Interfaces to major LINAC vendors ensure a completely integrated workflow.
