Orbital Therapy Launches ClearVue in EU


February 26, 2009 – Orbital Therapy, LLC announces the commercial introduction of ClearVue, prone position breast radiotherapy treatment table, in the European Union.

ClearVue is a carbon fiber add-on treatment table used to simulate and treat breast cancer patients in the prone position. ClearVue can be used with existing CT simulators and linear accelerators to plan and deliver radiation treatment for breast cancer patients.

ClearVue reportedly has the ability to provide unobstructed view and full access to the anatomy for precise treatment set-up and delivery. The open design allows the clinician to plan a treatment from more than two conventional angles and utilize more complex treatment techniques that are already in use with other anatomies.

Prone position breast cancer treatment is quickly gaining popularity. The prone position increases the separation of the target and uninvolved critical organs and minimizes or eliminates target motion caused by breathing. This results in the ability to deliver less dose to the surrounding organs such as lung and heart, and more precise dose to the intended target, according to Orbital Therapy.
