C-RAD and Elekta have worked together for several years to provide SIGRT technology to new and existing customers worldwide. Whereas in the past the cooperation was on project by project basis, this agreement focuses on a strategic cooperation to provide a comprehensive solution based on C-RAD’s SIGRT solution and Elekta linacs.
The Catalyst HD™ system, which integrates with Elekta linacs, provides gross patient positioning and postural positioning along with respiratory motion management. It extends the value of Elekta’s Versa HD™ high definition dynamic radiosurgery (HDRS) solution through complementary capabilities and technologies.
C-RAD will be presenting its surface tracking systems at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physics in Medicine (AAPM) in San Antonio, TX from July 14 to July 17, 2019.
“SIGRT is on its way to become part of the standard of care in advanced radiation therapy.” Says Tim Thurn, CEO of C-RAD “With our cutting-edge solutions and strong alliances we do have the opportunity to empower even more cancer centers and ultimately their patients to benefit from our technology.”
Maurits Wolleswinkel, President Linac Solutions at Elekta, said: “Our priority is always to provide a high level of patient safety and comfort while ensuring an efficient and seamless workflow for clinicians with the greatest degree of confidence. This collaboration with C-RAD supports Elekta’s linear accelerators – in particular, Versa HD – to meet the growing demand for SIGRT.
This sales and distribution agreement is scheduled to start in North America and Mexico on July 12, 2019 and eventually expand to other markets.
