Lund University confirms image quality of Gemini ED

C-RAD AB and its three wholly owned subsidiaries are all active in the field of
radiation therapy. Scientists at Lund University confirm that the images from
the flat panel imager Gemini ED have reached a quality that is comparable or
better than the existing systems on the market.
C-RAD Gemini system is based on technology originally developed at CERN in
Switzerland. Since then, the technology has been developed for use in medical
applications by Professor Anders Brahme and his team at the Karolinska
Institutet in Stockholm. C-RAD holds three patents, which ensures the
protection of the unique technology. 
Within the framework of the cooperation with Skåne University Hospital (SUS),
C-RAD Imaging AB carried out several series of tests at the SUS radiotherapy
department in Lund. Different generations of detectors and image panels were
tested, ranging from a first simple prototype to the now finished product
Gemini ED. Staff at Lund University and SUS has been able to follow the
evolution of the product and also noted the gradual improvement of the image
quality. A dedicated and innovative development work has now resulted in a
competitive product, with benefits exceeding existing flat panel imagers for
use in radiation therapy. 

Crister Ceberg, Associate Professor of Medical Radiation Physics, Lund
"It's been exciting to follow the development of the Gemini-detector. When I
saw the pictures of the first version, where you could see a wrench placed in
the field, I felt there was a long way to go. Many versions later , and after
several tests in Lund, the images that are now being produced are much more
impressive, and you can see that Gemini detector has reached an image quality
that is comparable or better than existing systems on the market. " 

Erik Hedlund, CEO, C-RAD AB:

”The cooperation with Crister Ceberg at Lund University has been crucial in the
development of the Gemini detector. The tests, conducted during late evenings
and weekends, have given the employees of C-RAD important information during
the development, and knowledge of the requirements, clinicians are putting
regarding the quality of the imaging systems.”
