SAN ANTONIO, TX, LEUSDEN, NL and EXTON, PA, (PRWEB) July 25, 2005
Acceletronics, Inc., a U.S. provider of radiation therapy service and distributor of equipment and parts, today announced that Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC) in San Antonio, Texas, has purchased thee more TheraView LX EPID systems, designed by Dutch manufacturer Cablon Medical BV.
Acceletronics and Cablon have a strategic alliance to market and support the new TheraView Technology line of portal imaging systems. The TheraView Â® system, designed for the precise needs of radiation therapy, delivers Clinicians a full scope of imaging and diagnostic features. In addition to DICOM export, high resolution image acquisition and the capability to display dynamic treatment movie loops, the Target CheckÂ® automated beam alignment verification software gives the precision and control Clinicians need for both conventional, image guided and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT).
ÂWe were so pleased with the first TheraView we had Acceletronics install for us last year, that we decided to outfit the rest of our treatment machinesÂ, said Mr. Jeff Peyton, Director of Accelerator and Biomedical Engineering, Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC), San Antonio, Texas. ÂThe TheraView EPID has not only freed us from film, darkroom and processor, it has helped us improve quality of care. We have found the TheraView to be a more reliable, less expensive alternative to the OEM offering.Â
ÂWe know by the feedback we are receiving from TheraView end users that the TheraView EPID and itÂs TargetCheckÂ® software is performing very well for both simple and complex portal imaging tasksÂ said James Young, Jr., Vice-President of Acceletronics, Inc. ÂAnd using proven, reliable and less costly leading edge technology for high quality imaging, the TheraView overall cost of ownership represents a savings of over 50% when compared to the amorphous silicon detector systems.Â
