November 4, 2009 - CIVCO Medical Solutions is launching the new Universal Couchtop at ASTRO booth #1547. The new Universal Couchtop is a strong, lightweight couchtop with low attenuation, ideal for IGRT tracking.
“CIVCO’s Universal Couchtop helps customers to achieve a seamless radiation oncology department,” Dayna Bodensteiner, CIVCO Product Manager, said. “The Universal Couchtop will also be available in a dosimetrically matching CT overlay to assist in dose accuracy between planning and treatment.”
The Universal Couchtop features a metal free extension seam with three extension choices: rectangular extension, Type-S extension and Varian end plate. The profile allows CIVCO’s SBRT Body Pro-Lok bridges to attach directly to the Universal Couchtop, and the Universal Couchtop is capable of being installed on 14 different linac models from Elekta, Siemens and Varian. The Universal Couchtop CT overlay will be compatible with seven different models from GE, Philips, Siemens and Toshiba.
