Vision RT Optical Guidance AlignRT Japan Radiation Therapy Patient Positioning

August 26, 2014 — Vision RT launched its motion management solutions in the Japanese market, after receiving clearance from the PMDA.

Following great success in other regions, most notably in the United States, Vision RT is now collaborating with Accuthera, a leading radiation therapy manufacturer based in Japan. With Accuthera, Vision RT can ensure that the AlignRT system reaches many medical centers in the world’s second largest advanced radiation therapy market.

Eiji Tanabe, president and CEO of Accuthera, said, “We’re enthusiastic about bringing Vision RT’s cutting-edge solutions to the Japanese market. These products increase accuracy and enhance safety during radiation delivery; this is crucial for the advancements of radiation therapy in Japan.”

The Makuhari Clinic in Chiba was the first Japanese center to adopt the AlignRT system. It was installed in this February, and the clinic intends to use it when treating all radiation therapy patients on all treatment sites.

Dr. Kazuo Hatano, director of the Makuhari Clinic, said, “We have chosen the AlignRT motion management system to help ensure that our radiation therapy patients receive safe, swift and accurate treatment. Our patients tell us that the system is more comfortable as it does not require restrictive immobilization.”

With Accuthera, Vision RT intends to reach more centers across Japan and has arranged a presentation on treatment techniques for Japanese customers to take place at the ASTRO 56th Annual Meeting. The presentation will highlight the benefits of using AlignRT for high precision treatment techniques.

Accuthera will also present Vision RT to Japanese customers at this year’s JASTRO conference on Dec. 11-13 in Pacifico Yokohama.
