Two orders of the C-RAD Sentinel system to the Chinese market.

C-RAD AB with its four fully owned subsidiaries are all active in the field of radiation therapy.  Two Sentinel systems have been ordered by Elekta in China. China is the fastest growing market in radiation therapy.

The C-RAD Sentinel system is an advanced easy- to-use laser scanner system that monitors the motions of the patient during the treatment. The Sentinel system delivered to Axesse users will also include functionality for patient positioning and interfaces for import and synchronization of patient data. Correction data in six degrees of freedom will be transferred to the Elekta couch called Hexapod evo.

The Sentinel systems will be delivered to Elekta in China to be integrated in its Axesse systems. Axesse is a dedicated system for so called stereotactic treatments. After approval of the system in China, Elekta in China will include Sentinel as a standard product.


Erik Hedlund, CEO, C-RAD AB:

"C-RAD was in 2009 selected as preferred supplier to Elekta of optical surface scanning systems. The intention by Elekta in China is to include Sentinel when offering Axesse for advanced stereotactic treatments. This confirms the high precision of the C-RAD solutions for use in advanced radiation therapy.

Availability of interfaces for auto set up and full communication to Elekta Axesse will increase the market for the C-RAD Sentinel system."
