Swedish med-tech company C-RAD has established its first experience center in India at Faridabad in Delhi-NCR.
Set up as a joint project with its India partner Marrsis Disha, the facility will train and upskill clinical professionals in precision radiotherapy. It will offer first-hand experience of C-RAD’s SGRT technologies and hands-on opportunities to explore how these can impact outcomes in cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy. SGRT is a tattoo-free alternative for patients who require radiation therapy. The technology uses advanced 3D camera technology to track and monitor patient movements during set-up and treatment.
The experience center is equipped with C-RAD Catalyst+ HD system with a complete software suite, including modules for respiratory gating, patient setup and positioning, and motion monitoring. It demonstrates accurate patient setup prior to the treatment and continuous monitoring of patients during a treatment fraction. The technology provides accuracy and safety for the patient to support high precision treatment techniques as well as efficiency in a complex treatment workflow.
SGRT technology allows positioning cancer patients with very high accuracy in the treatment beam. It uses 3D cameras and sophisticated software that computes in real-time the deviation of the actual position versus the desired position of the patient and the tumor. Through integration with the linear accelerator, SGRT can turn on or off the treatment beam, depending on whether the patient is in the right position or moves out of it. It increases safety and efficiency in advanced radiation therapy by protecting healthy tissue from exposure.
