CIVCO Celebrates Year One of Body Pro-Lok at AAPM

July 29, 2009 - CIVCO Medical Solutions is featuring Body Pro-Lok for SBRT at AAPM booth #481.
Introduced at AAPM 2008, Body Pro-Lok is an immobilization tool at numerous clinics over the last year, both for SBRT and other treatment procedures.
The modular Body Pro-Lok system functions as a base for indexable patient positioning, secure immobilization and efficient patient transport. The system is highly adaptable to the individual department’s technology and needs. Body Pro-Lok users have treated a wide variety of anatomical sites, ranging from lung and liver to metastatic spinal tumors. Patient comfort was a primary concern for CIVCO during the design of Body Pro-Lok.
Bodensteiner has had the opportunity to speak with most Body Pro-Lok users. “The feedback has been very positive,” she comments. “During numerous product demos, we have heard customers asking for more information on SBRT in general. Therefore, we have developed an ‘Understanding SBRT’ CE course to support continuing education needs in this area. We’ll continue to listen to our customers and respond to their needs.”
