Promising results with C-RAD's GEMiniTM imaging system at Lund University

C-RAD AB with its three fully owned subsidiaries develops new and innovative
solutions for use in advanced radiation therapy. After 3 years of intensive and
challenging develop-ment work done by the C-RAD research team, first clinical
result with the 40cm x 40cm GEMiniTM image panel is presented. The clinical
tests have been performed in close cooperation with the Lund University
Hospital. Test results are promising and according to expectations. 
The GEMiniTM family of image detector panels is primarily designed for use in
radiation therapy but the panels can also be used in various industrial
applications. The market potential for C-RAD Imaging's products exceeds 150
MUSD. GEMiniTM products represent world class performance and comprise state of
the art technology including new unique patented inventions. These new
inventions enable superior image quality combined with lower cost of ownership. 
The first model to be released is GEMiniTM ED, which is optimized for use in
high energy photon radiation applications (MeV) as a so called EPID (Electronic
Portal Imaging Device). With its high detection efficiency and expected long
life time it will be an attractive solution in radiation therapy. 
The first clinical tests have successfully been performed using an Elekta
accelerator system and in close cooperation with physicists at the Lund
University Hospital. The first results are exciting and can be seen at the
C-RAD home page, see 

Erik Hedlund, CEO, C-RAD AB:
"Radiation therapy clinics all over the world are looking for a detector system
with high detection efficiency and improved quality. The C-RAD GEMini ED
development project has been focused on these requirements. The technology is
also offering real time imaging with up to 200 images per second and a system
that at the same time can be used for high energies in MV and X-Ray detection. 
The C-RAD research team has been able to meet the demanding requirements.
Production of the first units is now started up.”
