Florida Medical Device Manufacturer Announces New Product Release for Radiation Therapy
Date:9/12/2011

SANFORD, Fla., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- .decimal, Inc. (pronounced dot decimal), an innovative manufacturer of patient-specific medical devices for radiation therapy, announced that it received 510(k) clearance from the FDA to market electron apertures for use with Varian treatment machines.  These devices are now available to radiation oncology centers across the U.S. and Canada.  

Electron apertures -- also known as electron 'cutouts' by radiation therapy departments -- are medical devices required for the targeted delivery of electrons to patients in radiation therapy.

By providing custom-made electron apertures to radiation oncology centers, .decimal® helps these facilities reduce the cost of maintaining an on-site mold room, which can add to the department or facility's costs.

"At .decimal®, our staff excels at the development of radiation therapy devices based on our customers' needs," said Richard Sweat, President and CEO of .decimal, Inc. "We are energized that the release of Electron Apertures can eliminate the need to handle toxic materials like Cerrobend at medical facilities."

With this solution, .decimal® provides radiation therapy facilities the ability to focus on treating pa
