Amar Sawhney, chief executive officer and director of Augmenix said, "The SpaceOAR System is designed to provide a unique and cost effective way to manage potential reduction in injury to organs at risk, such as the rectum, during radiotherapy of the prostate.  Better targeting may enable radiation oncologists to deliver more radiation per treatment, thus decreasing the total number of treatments required (hypofractionation), resulting in significant healthcare savings. We are excited to have Varian, with its significant market leading expertise in radiation therapies, appreciate this potential for improvement of cancer care, and help us bring these advances to market."
