CIVCO to Showcase Protura and Varian Interface at AAPM 2014

CORALVILLE, Iowa, July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CIVCO Medical Solutions, the leading provider of radiation oncology motion management solutions, will demonstrate the ProturaTM Robotic Patient Positioning System's seamless interface with Varian's Clinac® iX and Trilogy® medical linear accelerators via the Varian Motion Management Interface the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Annual Meeting in Austin, TX, July 20-23, booth #607.

CIVCO's Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System remotely repositions patients with robotic 6 degrees of freedom giving Varian Linac users the ability to ensure sub-millimeter positioning accuracy from outside the treatment room. Combined with CIVCO's comprehensive motion management solutions, Protura is optimized to handle the rigors of a busy clinic while improving efficiency and throughput.

The Radiation Oncology Department at Universita Cattolica Sacro Cuore (UCSC) Policlinico A. Gemelli, Rome, Italy is the first facility to benefit from this seamless interface.

"The recent integration with Varian allows our facility to set up patients with essentially no time added to our treatment workflow-while improving quality assurance with no manual entry," said Dr. Silvia Chiesa, MD, Radiation Oncology Department at UCSC. "In addition to SRS, SRT and SBRT patient treatment, we also use the Protura system for our standard patient care, realizing the need to reduce rotational errors and improve setup accuracy for all IGRT treatment applications."

Protura and Varian integration will be demonstrated in the CIVCO booth throughout the meeting. CIVCO's team of motion management experts will demonstrate additional treatment solutions and how they simplify the clinician's workday and improve workflow and efficiency between imaging and treatment. These and other solutions for head & neck, breast, lung, abdomen and prostate will be spotlighted in-booth and on interactive touchscreen displays.

  • Universal Couchtop™ Long Extension
    The Universal Couchtop Long Extension (UCT LE) provides seamless imaging and treatment planning with dosimetrically matched couchtops that feature a large, junction-free & artifact-free treatment area. 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.  
  • trUpoint ARCH™ SRS/SRT System
    The newly released trUpoint ARCH improves the patient's experience and quality of care during SRS/SRT treatments with a non-invasive accurate, repeatable and comfortable hold that allowed less than 1 mm of patient movement during intrafraction immobilization testing.
  • Body Pro-Lok™ SBRT Immobilization
    Body Pro-Lok SBRT Immobilization allows for customized setups utilizing bridges that secure directly to the couchtop, thus eliminating the need for overlays and ensuring equivalent setups between CT and treatment. The Body Pro-Lok System provides a simple, modular and reproducible foundation for any high-precision SBRT program, adapting to any department's needs.
  • MRSeries™ Positioning Devices
    MRSeries provides a new dimension in radiation therapy treatment planning. With patient positioning and fixation devices for every disease site, MRSeries enables accurate transfer from MRI imaging to treatment.
  • Fiducial Markers
    Implantable fiducial markers provide a highly effective method of ensuring accurate target localization for tumors/organs which move in respect to external anatomy, as well as for the precise localization needed for stereotactic radiotherapy. CIVCO offers the largest selection of specially designed fiducial markers.
