July 10, 2015 - Civco Medical Solutions will showcase new patient positioning and immobilization innovations to attendees of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) annual meeting July 12 – 16 in Anaheim, California.

Civco's new product introductions include advanced patient positioning options for stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) treatment with the Body Pro-Lok ONE solution; an interface with the Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System; Universal Couchtop Long Extension solutions; and the trUpoint ARCH SRS/SRT System for magnetic resonance (MR) simulation. 

  • Body Pro-Lok ONE SBRT Immobilization

The Body Pro-Lok ONE SBRT Immobilization System allows for customized setups utilizing one bridge versus three for varying patient sizes. This advanced design features lateral and tilting offset and variable height adjustment that expands and contracts for increased linear accelerator (linac) clearance and patients that have natural rotation. The bridge secures directly to the Universal Couchtop, eliminating the need for overlays and ensuring equivalent setups between computed tomography (CT) and treatment. 

 

  • Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System

Protura software now provides an interface solution for Varian users with MOSAIQ Record and Verify systems. The new interface automatically opens patient information in Protura software when the patient is opened in MOSAIQ, and automatically loads patient shift data to match Varian's On-Board Imager (OBI) kV imaging system. Protura remotely repositions patients with robotic 6 degrees of freedom, giving users the ability to ensure sub-millimeter positioning accuracy from outside the treatment room. The Protura and Varian software interface will be demonstrated in the Civco booth throughout the meeting. 

 

  • Universal Couchtop Long Extension

Several new additions to the Universal Couchtop Long Extension family have been released, including kevlar, grid and embedded wires solutions. Universal Couchtop provides seamless imaging and treatment planning with dosimetrically matched couchtops that feature a large, junction-free and artifact-free treatment area. The profile of the Universal Couchtop allows the Body Pro-Lok ONE bridge to attach directly to the couchtop, enabling a seamlessly integrated SBRT immobilization platform. 

 

  • trUpoint ARCH SRS/SRT System

trUpoint ARCH has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for MR environments and centers using MR simulation for stereotactic radiosurgery/stereotactic radiation therapy (SRS/SRT) cases. trUpoint ARCH improves the patient's experience with a non-invasive, accurate, repeatable and comfortable hold, with less than 1 mm of patient movement during intrafraction immobilization testing.
