Order for three C-RAD systems from German customer

Press release 2014-12-16

C-RAD secured an order of two Catalyst HD™ systems as well as a Sentinel™ system from Klinikum Chemnitz, which operates the radiation oncology clinic in Chemnitz, Gemany. An option for a long-term service contract has also been negotiated. The total order value including options is worth 3.5 MSEK.

The Catalyst HDs will be delivered with the complete software configuration containing modules for Respiratory Gating, Patient Setup and Positioning, and Motion Monitoring as well as interfaces to the existing CT and linear accelerators. The customer also decided on the unique audio-visual couching functionality that supports an interactive gating mode.

The delivery and installation of the first two systems will be in the summer of 2015, while the third system will be delivered in the following year.

The Catalyst and Sentinel systems offer the required technology to perform high-end treatment techniques within radiation therapy. With this solution C-RAD supports the whole 4D treatment chain from imaging to delivery. Respiratory gated treatments are frequently used when the target volume is close to cardiac tissue or for special treatments in which the tumor position depends on the respiratory cycle.


“I am glad to be able to welcome the team from Klinikum Chemnitz very soon into our family of C-RAD users,” says Tim Thurn, CEO of C-RAD. “The Catalyst HD system was specifically developed for use in stereotactic treatment. Its functionality gives our customers the opportunity to monitor the patient prior and during treatment to increase accuracy and safety. I am also very pleased with our sales development in our major regions. Among the western countries – especially the US, but also central Europe – there is still a high potential for C-RAD products.”
