Clearly On Target: Announcing Integration between the Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System and the AlignRT® 3D Imaging System  (Protura's integration with AlignRT is 510(k) pending)– The Protura 6 DOF (degree of freedom) Robotic Patient Positioner now integrates seamlessly with the AlignRT® 3D surface imaging solution from Vision RT.  This integration allows the AlignRT® user to apply calculated translation and rotational shifts automatically to the Protura system from within the simple and intuitive AlignRT® user interface.  The AlignRT® system is non-invasive, does not require the use of markers and adds no further irradiation.  The Protura system provides automated, consistent and accurate 6 DOF patient alignment.  Together these leading-edge technologies advance the adoption of sophisticated treatment techniques.  The combination of positioning accuracy, advanced technology and data consistency provided with system integration makes Protura the clinician's first choice for streamlined workflow and increased patient throughput.  This integration will be demonstrated in the CIVCO and Vision RT booths at AAPM.

Clearly Invisible: Universal Couchtop Long Extension – The new Universal Couchtop Long Extension (UCT LE) facilitates better delivery of dose and target coverage by eliminating the interference of rails and junctions with radiation delivery.[1] The robust and durable UCT LE features a large junction-free and artifact-free treatment area. All four extension options attach and detach with ease. The unique profile of the UCT LE allows CIVCO's SBRT Body Pro-Lok bridges to attach directly to the couchtop, enabling a seamlessly integrated SBRT immobilization platform.

Clearly Visible: New Fiducial Markers, FusionCoil and PolyMark – CIVCO stays on the leading edge of marker research and development, and the company provides an extensive line of fiducials for a wide variety of clinical applications. CIVCO is spotlighting two new markers designed for image fusion at AAPM 2012.

  • FusionCoil Marker: FusionCoil images as well in MR as it does in CT, providing a superior reference for image fusion and works with all IGRT systems.
  • PolyMark Marker: PolyMark is the first biocompatible polymer-based marker. The PolyMark is visualized in MR, creates virtually no artifact in CT and is clearly visible in kV based IGRT solutions.
