Order of C-RAD SentinelTM


C-RAD AB with its three fully owned subsidiaries develops new and innovative
solutions for the use in advanced radiation therapy. The company has received
an order from RayClinic, Sweden, of the SentinelTM laser scanner systems. 


RayClinic is Sweden's first private cancer clinic focused on advanced
radiotherapy. The treatment techniques are based on world leading well tested
Swedish research developed at the Karolinska Institutet. The clinic specializes
in high quality curative and palliative radiotherapy. RayClinic has ordered two
SentinelTM laser scanner systems from C-RAD Positioning AB. The systems will be
used for positioning of patients prior to treatment where SentinelTM offers
significant improvements in accuracy and efficiency compared to conventional
methods. The order also includes the recently released motion detection
functionality which detects and alerts upon movements of the patient during the
treatment. The patient positioning and motion detection functionalities are
easy to use and well integrated to other systems at the clinic. The SentinelTM
system will also be used in advanced treatments based on respiratory gating.
