Acceletronics and Cablon Medical BV announce the New TheraView® KV Imager system for IGRT verification
EXTON PA, and LEUSDEN, NL - August 2010 - Acceletronics Digital Imaging, LLC announces it has received 510(K) marketing clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the new RAD II KV Imager for Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT). The RAD II KV Imager can be mounted on virtually any model of linear accelerator. The new KV Imager, which is driven by TheraView® software, provides high quality X-Ray images for maximum clinical efficiency and resolution. With hundreds of TheraView® installations world-wide, the TheraView® KV Imager is a natural product evolution of its legacy MV (mega-voltage) imaging product line. The TheraView ® KV Imager seamlessly integrates with existing TheraView® EPIDs, as well, as with linear accelerators that have other brands of electronic portal imaging devices. The TheraView ® KV system is the only X-Ray based, iso-centric, IGRT solution that can be mounted to all brands of linear accelerators, allowing a seamless upgrade to KV-Imaging IGRT.
“The KV-Imager is a natural extension of the TheraView ® MV-based (electronic portal imaging device) IGRT solution that we and Cablon Medical have been marketing and selling worldwide for many years,” states Mr. James Young, VP of Sales and Application Support for Acceletronics. “After completing three successful installations at U.S. beta sites, we are pleased to offer the product in the U.S. and abroad.”
“Kilovoltage (KV) imaging offers improved image resolution to allow clinicians greater detail when performing pre-treatment tumor position verification. Once the high resolution image is acquired, the TheraView TargetCheck® workstation provides a comparison between the newly acquired image and the original patient position image or DRR”, continued Mr. Young. “If the patient is not in the correct position, the therapist can easily reposition the patient directly from the treatment console using the remote-couch feature, also referred to as the TheraView® Couch Set-up Assistant (TCSA), which is a standard feature in the TheraView® KV package.
TheraView® Imaging systems are manufactured by Cablon Medical BV in The Netherlands, and the RAD II KV Imager is manufactured by Acceletronics Digital Imaging, LLC. in the United States. The TheraView® KV Imager is distributed and serviced by Acceletronics, Inc., Radiology Oncology Systems (ROS) and Cablon Medical BV.
