C-RAD announces today a partnership agreement with the Renova Oncology Group based in Hyderabad, India. The agreement includes an order for multiple Catalyst+ HD and Sentinel 4DCT systems and a multiyear service agreement.
The Renova Oncology Group is a private healthcare provider that was founded in Hyderabad and is establishing oncology centers across the country. The first installation will take place in Renova’s main center in Hyderabad. The site will become a Center of Excellence, with the ambition to establish a reference site and a training facility. The agreement opens for joint research projects.
Dr Janardhan Nandigam, Chief Technology Officer at Renova comments: “We at Renova Oncology always believe that safety and Precision are the mainstays of Radiation Oncology and SGRT is way ahead in achieving the goal. Our association with C-RAD will only take us in the right direction and we look forward to the partnership.”
The systems will be delivered with the complete software suite including modules for Respiratory Gating, Patient Setup & Positioning and Motion Monitoring as well as a dedicated software that supports stereotactic treatments. The C-RAD SGRT system (Surface Guided Radiation Therapy) provides the customer with a tool for accurate patient setup prior to the treatment and continuous monitoring of the patient during a treatment fraction. The technology provides accuracy and safety for the patient to support high precision treatment techniques as well as efficiency in a complex treatment workflow.
