Toshiba Medical Launches Galan RT Solutions for MRI Radiation Therapy Planning

December 19, 2017 — Toshiba Medical, a Canon Group company, introduced the Galan RT Solutions suite of radiation therapy tools, available on the premium Vantage Galan 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system at the 2017 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting, Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago. Galan RT Solutions allow healthcare providers to precisely map MR data to positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) images to develop confident plans for radiation therapy.

The all-new Galan RT Solutions include the advanced Universal Couchtop MR Overlay from Civco Radiotherapy to aid clinicians in accurately determining the treatment target area, helping to improve patient safety by sparing healthy tissue from unnecessary radiation. The fiberglass and foam couchtop overlay core offers a high degree of stability for the head, neck and shoulders, and Prodigy 2 indexing at 7 cm increments to help physicians seamlessly transfer from imaging to treatment. A Three-Pin Lok-Bar offers providers the option to use existing MR-compatible devices by indexing them to the overlay, while adjustable ATLAS body coil technology allows clinicians to combine coils for extended patient coverage and enhanced workflow. Galan RT Solutions are rounded out with the optional MR Laser from LAP Laser and Mirada RTx Fusion software, which enable providers to achieve precise patient marking, accurate treatment planning and exact positioning for successful treatment.
