C-RAD announced today an agreement to supply its cutting-edge SGRT solution to a newly built proton therapy center in Texas, US. The agreement includes multiple systems and a multiyear service agreement.
The center is equipped with a Hitachi proton therapy system with four treatment rooms. Two treatment rooms will be equipped with the C-RAD technology in the initial phase with an option to further expand into the other rooms. The new center is expected to assume clinical treatments in early 2023.
The C-RAD SGRT (Surface Image Guided Radiation Therapy) solution with the Sentinel 4DCT™ and Catalyst HD™ technology was chosen to optimize patient safety before and during treatment, efficiency and precision to support advanced treatment techniques such as DIBH (Deep Inspiration Breath Hold) and SRT (Stereotactic Radiation Therapy).
The Catalyst system will be delivered with the complete software suite including modules for Respiratory Gating, Patient Setup & Positioning as well as Motion Monitoring. The C-RAD SGRT system (Surface Guided Radiation Therapy) provides the customer with a tool for accurate patient setup prior to the treatment and continuous monitoring of the patient during a treatment fraction. The technology provides accuracy and safety for the patient to support high precision treatment techniques as well as efficiency in a complex treatment workflow.
“We are truly excited about the collaboration with this proton therapy center” says Tim Thurn, CEO and President of C-RAD AB, “Proton therapy is considered to be the spearhead of precision radiation therapy. Accurate tumor positioning and monitoring during treatment is a key factor for a successful treatment.”
The total order has a value of approx. 9 MSEK for C-RAD. Delivery and installation are expected to commence within the next months.
