Erik Hedlund, CEO, C-RAD AB:

"The ASTRO show at the end of the year in the US is the most important oncology
meeting in radiation therapy. Customers are making last decisions to invest but
also plans for the coming year. 

Sentinel has been recognized as a key system for optical scanning. The GEMini
detector with its image quality is getting increasing attention. 

The US market in 2009 has been slow. An important reason has been the
uncertainty about future reimbursement rates for radiation therapy treatments.
New rates have been fixed. In most cases the changes are minor. The market is
expected to return back to normal.”
