Elekta and C-RAD have signed a sales and distribution agreement. C-RAD is a Swedish company specializing in positioning and surface scanning products. C-RAD offers surface image guided radiation therapy (SIGRT) technology with its Catalyst HD™ system, a solution used in stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and motion management.
C-RAD has worked with Elekta for several years to provide its SIGRT technology to new and existing customers worldwide. C-RAD simplifies patient setup and provides comprehensive SIGRT for all patient positioning and motion management. The Catalyst 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.
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.”
Tim Thurn, CEO of C-RAD, added: “SIGRT is on its way to become part of the standard of care in advanced radiation therapy. With our cutting-edge solutions and strong alliances, we have the opportunity to empower even more cancer centers, and ultimately their patients, to benefit from our technology.”
This sales and distribution agreement is scheduled to start in North America and Mexico on July 12, 2019 and eventually expand to other markets.Back To Top
