C-RAD announced today orders from Varian Medical Systems to equip Nya Karolinska Solna (NKS), Sweden with its latest SGRT (Surface Image Guided Radiation Therapy) solution.
The contract includes the supply of C-RAD’s cutting edge surface tracking solution based on the products Sentinel 4DCT and Catalyst HD. It includes also products that C-RAD is distributing for other vendors in the field of radiation therapy in Sweden. The order has a value of approximately 22.7 MSEK.
In August 2017, C-RAD announced a contract with Elekta Instrument to supply radiation therapy equipment to NKS and Södersjukhuset. This agreement is being amended. As the present order with Varian is overlapping with the agreement with Elekta that was announced in August, C-RAD is booking the difference of 6,7 MSEK as additional order intake in Q1 2018.
Approximately forty percent of the order volume is allocated to distribution products and sixty percent to C-RAD products. For the C-RAD products, the gross profit margin is higher than on sales of distribution products. It is expected to commence delivery and installation in April 2018 and finalize implementation until the end of 2018.
The systems will be delivered with the complete C-RAD software suite with modules for patient positioning, respiratory gating and motion monitoring during treatment to ensure exceptionally high precision and efficiency. C-RAD provides interfaces to seamlessly integrate its products into the workflow, for a maximum in user comfort and optimized patient safety.
