radiation therapy. According to plan has now the Sentinel laser scanner been
certified for use in Japan and introduction to Japanese market was done at the
annual ITEM meeting in Yokohama, Japan, recently. The first ordered Sentinel

The Japanese radiotherapy market is highly interesting with large number of
clinics and a high degree of advanced radiation procedures. In accordance with
the strategy of C-RAD to establish a firm presence in selected important

approval to sell and use the Sentinel laser scanner system in Japan was
received earlier this year. Following this certification approval C-RAD

in combination with increased efficiency in radiation treatments and the
exhibition with demonstrations of the products capability attracted lots of
interest from the participants. 

With the certification approval in place and the launch of the product at ITEM
