CIVCO to Feature New trUpoint ARCH SRS/SRT System at the 2nd ESTRO Forum 2013


CORALVILLE, Iowa – CIVCO Medical Solutions, the leading provider of comprehensive motion management solutions, will showcase trUpoint ARCH™, a new stereotactic radiosurgery solution, Protura™ Robotic Patient Positioning System, and the Universal Couchtop™ Long Extension, along with other disease site solutions at the 2nd ESTRO Forum, booth #5200 in Geneva, Switzerland, 19-23 April 2013.



    -  trUpoint ARCH - CIVCO's new SRS/SRT solution for head and brain disease

       sites provides clinicians a simple and manageable patient set-up

       assuring accuracy and repeatability during treatments.  The frameless

       bridge design effectively stabilizes a patient's head in a non-invasive,

       comfortable hold for delivering high radiation doses. Compatible with

       the Universal Couchtop, Posifix® thermoplastic system, AccuForm™

       cushions and Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System, trUpoint ARCH

       provides a comprehensive motion management solution for effective

       SRS/SRT treatment.

    -  Universal Couchtop Long Extension - The 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. UCT LE allows a more efficient

       workflow with seamless transition from simulation to treatment provided

       by dosimetrically matching couchtops. Additionally, 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.

    -  Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System - The Protura system is

       designed to integrate with existing IGRT solutions and Linac.  The

       system positions the patient with 6 degrees of freedom from outside the

       treatment room, enabling more accurate treatment and keeps patient

       positioning and motion management on target.  Protura provides the

       platform to provide a comprehensive motion management solution for every

       disease site.



CIVCO will debut their new interactive booth where attendees are invited to learn how comprehensive motion management solutions are clearly connected for every disease site.
