Strategic orders of the C-RAD Sentinel system
C-RAD AB with its three fully owned subsidiaries is all active in the field of
radiation therapy. A new and improved version with new functionalities of the
C-RAD Sentinel system was during Q3 released. In November important orders of
the new system were booked. 
The Sentinel hardware has been further developed in order to increase the
quality, improve the service friendliness and to lower the manufacturing cost.
The manufacturing process has been streamlined and been moved to a
subcontractor with a long experience of medical device manufacturing.
Deliveries of the new system have started. The improved system has been well
received by the market. 
Uppsala University Hospital ordered their third Sentinel laser scanner system
in the beginning of November. This system will be installed and integrated with
an accelerator system delivered by the Swedish company Elekta. The delivery
will include complete new functionality for advanced respiratory gated
treatments. The Sentinel system will communicate with the CT- scanner at the
clinic, its treatment planning system and the linear accelerator to control the
respiratory gated procedure. 
C-RAD is developing and manufacturing a private label version of the laser
scanning system for the German company LAP. LAP is the leading company
worldwide in the field of alignment lasers for use in radiation therapy. LAP is

Group. Three orders were booked for the LAP version called Galaxy. More orders
