North American Scientific Inc. announced that its NOMOS Radiation Oncology division will introduce the recently FDA 510(k) approved BATCAM Multi-probe, its new IGRT solution, at the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physics in Medicine (AAPM).
BATCAM Multi-probe integrates a new multi-probe capable ultrasound system into the company's core IGRT product, BATCAM. The new system features an updated abdominal ultrasound probe featuring color Doppler ultrasound enabling IGRT for liver and pancreas treatments in addition to prostate and gynecology. Optional add-ons to the system include a bi-planar rectal probe for prostate volume studies and prostate brachytherapy and a wideband, linear probe for verification of Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI) brachytherapy devices such as ClearPath. BATCAM Multi-probe is expected to be available for shipment in early August 2007.
