Civco Displaying Universal Couchtop ProForm Head & Neck Solution at AAPM

Couchtop allows effective proton therapy treatment of central nervous system cancers

Civco Displaying Universal Couchtop ProForm Head & Neck Solution at AAPM

July 3, 2019 — The upcoming release of Civco’s Universal Couchtop ProForm Head & Neck Solution will allow proton therapy centers direct access to effectively treat central nervous system (CNS) cancer patients.

The extension is quick and easy to attach and features a large, 121.5 cm junction-free and artifact-free treatment area. The ProForm contains a homogeneous treatment area with soft gradient edges that reduce beam degradation. ProForm accepts a thermoplastic mask with a smaller profile frame and pin similar to Civco’s Type-S system. The ProForm solution follows the Universal Couchtop release with IBA’s Proteus One and Proteus Plus. Utilizing the Universal Couchtop allows dosimetric consistency with computed tomography (CT) simulation, photon and proton treatment compatible models, improving clinic workflow.

Civco will display the Universal Couchtop at the 2019 American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) annual meeting, July 14-18 in San Antonio, Texas.
