October 8, 2013 — Civco Medical Solutions announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System integration with Varian Medical Systems' Motion Management Interface.

Protura remotely repositions patients with robotic 6 degrees of freedom to ensure sub-millimeter positioning accuracy. Protura's integration with the Varian Motion Management Interface automatically opens the relevant patient information in Protura software, drawing it from Varian's 4DTC System, automatically loads patient shift data to match Varian's On-Board Imager kV imaging system (OBI), and automatically imports the Varian pedestal location.

"The integration with Protura will provide our Clinac iX and Trilogy users with a safe and efficient workflow for 6DOF patient set-up corrections," said Kevin O'Reilly, senior director of marketing, Varian. "The software automation simplifies applying robotic corrections with seamless implementation for all IGRT procedures. Continued integration with Civco's motion management platform will allow Varian users to immobilize and then provide controlled 6D correction, thus fully utilizing the benefits of their Varian treatment system."

The first clinical use of the Protura and Varian integration was with the Universita Cattolica Sacro Cuore Policlinico (UCSC) where, over the past year the, clinic has been evaluating the impact of the Protura system in a high volume radiotherapy center, surveying geometrical, dosimetric, management and clinical parameters.
