Press release 2009-09-09

C-RAD AB and its three fully owned subsidiaries are all active in the field of
radiation therapy. The company exhibited at the physicist meeting ESTRO in
Maastricht, the Netherlands, 30 August - 2 September. The Sentinel™ laser
scanner system was demonstrated in the C-RAD booth and also together with
Elekta. Meetings with several major vendors were held also regarding the
GEMini™ detector system. 

The ESTRO meeting is the major European event in radiation therapy, this time
held in Maastricht in the Netherlands. The C-RAD Sentinel™ system was exhibited
both by C-RAD and the radiation therapy company Elekta. The Sentinel™ system in
the Elekta booth was presented together with Axesse™, the Elekta high-end
solution for stereotactic radiosurgery and radiation therapy. 

Both displays were attracting attention from clinicians as well as
representatives from the key vendors. Several distributors also announced their
interest in representing C-RAD on their respective markets. 

Scientific studies on the Sentinel™ system were presented by university
hospitals in Italy and Germany. These studies confirm the sub-millimeter
accuracy of the Sentinel™ system and its advantages compared to conventional
methods such as portal imaging in correctly detecting misalignments in all six
degrees of freedom. 


Erik Hedlund, CEO, C-RAD AB:

“The annual ESTRO meeting is the single most important opportunity for reaching
out to the European radiation therapy community. Our cooperation with Elekta
continues to give us an added exposure and creates a greatly increased
awareness of the C-RAD product line.”
