Siemens Demos Robotic Table System at ASTRO 2008

September 23, 2008 - Siemens Healthcare showed its works-in-progress (WIP) TREAGO Robotic Table, a system designed for fast, precise patient positioning during radiation therapy, at ASTRO 2008.

TREAGO reportedly fully automates the entire positioning process, increasing accuracy and saving patient on-table time. The design supports complex treatment applications and provides clinicians the flexibilitiy to personalize patient care.

Another work-in-progress, the IM-Confident Plan, is described by Siemens as a simple and efficient intensity-modulated radiation therapy solution that can cut treatment time to under five minutes. The IM-RealART Solution allows plan adjustments to accommodate changes in patient anatomy within image-guided radiation therapy and combines the TREGO Robotic Table with Siemens’ CT Vision system for real-time imaging and its Prowess RealART Treatment Planning System.
