The Uppsala company C-RAD received an order for the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough, UK, for the C-RAD Catalyst System.
The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough will focus the use of the Catalyst System on the treatment of breast cancer patients, states C-RAD. The installation is scheduled for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year 2014. C-RAD products are distributed by the company Vertec Scientific Ltd. in the UK.
“With the James Cook University Hospital we have a cutting-edge radiation therapy center as our first reference in the UK. The first system in a country is always an important milestone to further develop the local market,” says Tim Thurn, CEO, C-RAD AB.
The Catalyst system is based on a new generation hardware and software platform for high performance optical surface scanning and augmented reality through re-projection. Advanced and highly optimized algorithms for non-rigid registration and deformable models enable real-time assessment of patient positioning errors before and during treatment delivery. The system calculates isocenter adjustments and interfaces to major vendors ensure a completely integrated workflow.
