July 29, 2008 – Eight new abstracts were presented at AAPM 2008 on prostate motion management in radiation therapy using the Calypso 4D Localization System by Calypso Medical Technologies Inc.
These scientific abstracts summarize clinical experiences with the first commercial installations of the Calypso System in radiation therapy.
The Calypso System is reportedly the only product platform that provides real-time tumor tracking during radiation treatment. This information is critical in assuring the clinician and the patient that the radiation treatment prescribed is delivered to the cancerous tissue while avoiding adjacent healthy organs. Known as GPS for the Body, the Calypso System utilizes implanted Beacon electromagnetic transponders smaller than a grain of rice to enable continuous tracking of the prostate during radiation treatment.
At the show, Calypso Medical featured motion management solutions, including its most recent product upgrades for Beam On Reporting, Workflow Efficiency Enhancements and work-in-progress new system release for motion management; Adaptive Couch Repositioning and Motion Analysis Trend Reporting.
