C-RAD demonstrated its patient positioning solutions at the ASTRO. The CATALYST HD™ system enjoyed large attention among the visitors. It was the first presentation of the system after its release to radiation oncologists in North America.
C-RAD demonstrated Catalyst HD™ in live shows on the main stage in the center of the booth. With the help of a model patient the clinical benefits were presented to the audience. The focus was to show the system for the setup of breast cancer patients as well as for stereotactic treatments. GEMini™ and Sentinel 4DCT™ were also presented as part of C-RADs radiation therapy workflow solutions.
The ASTRO's Annual Meeting is the largest radiation oncology scientific event worldwide. Every year it attracts more than 11,000 attendees. The ASTRO Meeting is attended mainly by radiation oncologists and medical physicists. The next ASTRO meeting will take place in San Antonio, Texas. C-RAD will install a CATALYST HD system in San Antonio during the fourth quarter this year.

With the help of our excellent sales team we will tap this potential and convert it into orders.” says Tim Thurn, CEO of C-RAD AB
