Civco Features trUpoint ARCH SRS/SRT System at ESTRO

Civco Medical Solutions trUpoint ARCH Protura ESTRO Forum

April 15, 2013 — Civco Medical Solutionswill showcase trUpoint Arch, a new stereotactic radiosurgery solution, Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System, and the Universal Couchtop Long Extension, along  with other disease site solutions at the 2nd ESTRO Forum, booth #5200 in Geneva, Switzerland, April 19 to 23 2013.

trUpoint ARCH — CIVCO’s new SRS/SRT solution for head and brain disease sites provides clinicians a simple and manageable patient set-up assuring accuracy and repeatability during treatments. The frameless bridge design effectively stabilizes a patient’s head in a non-invasive, comfortable hold for delivering high radiation doses. Compatible with the Universal Couchtop, Posifix thermoplastic system, AccuForm cushions and Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System, trUpoint Arch provides a comprehensive motion management solution for effective SRS/SRT treatment.

Universal Couchtop Long Extension — The Universal Couchtop Long Extension (UCT LE) facilitates better delivery of dose and target coverage by eliminating the interference of rails and junctions with radiation delivery.[1] The robust and durable UCT LE features a large junction-free and artifact-free treatment area. All four extension options attach and detach with ease. UCT LE allows a more efficient workflow with seamless transition from simulation to treatment provided by dosimetrically matching couchtops. Additionally, the unique profile of the UCT LE allows CIVCO’s SBRT Body Pro-Lok bridges to attach directly to the couchtop, enabling a seamlessly integrated SBRT immobilization platform.

Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System — The Protura system is designed to integrate with existing IGRT solutions and Linac. The system positions the patient with 6 degrees of freedom from outside the treatment room, enabling more accurate treatment and keeps patient positioning and motion management on target.  Protura provides the platform to provide a comprehensive motion management solution for every disease site.
