Coralville, Iowa, (October 18, 2021) – CIVCO Radiotherapy, the leading global provider of high quality, innovative, patient-centric radiotherapy solutions, will return to in-person exhibition, October 24 -27 in Chicago at the 2021 ASTRO Annual meeting, booth 944.
“We are ready to be back live at ASTRO to have face to face conversations with our providers and to continue demonstrating solutions for improving patient care and outcomes,” said Nat Geissel, President of CIVCO Radiotherapy. “The pandemic has deeply impacted the world and we are anxious to personally thank those that continued to focus on the mission-critical treatment of cancer patients during these difficult times.”
CIVCO RT’s current innovations and solutions focusing on improving patient comfort, wellness, and outcomes, before, during and after treatment will be available for demonstration.
Solstice™ SRS Immobilization System: Offers unique corrective pitch capability and positioning flexibility. It features customizable components that create a comfortable head and neck immobilization system to improve patient setup during hypofractionation treatment. Innovations in MR compatibility and thermoplastic for shoulder immobilization and reproducibility will be displayed.
Body Pro-Lok™ ONE SBRT Immobilization System: Features the only bridge on the market that allows variable height adjustment, and lateral and tilting offset, enabling the bridge and respiratory plate to adapt to the patient’s natural posture and body type. A respiratory belt is available to provide pneumatic compression and immobilization to the abdominal region.
Comfort Marker 2.0 Patient Marking System: Brings a new level of comfort to the patient’s radiotherapy treatment by applying reference points in a shallow manner to the upper dermis layer of skin, resulting in less pain to the patient. The reference point(s) may fade over time or can be removed easily with a laser treatment. Comfort Marker is CE Marked and currently not available in the U.S.
Universal Couchtop™ ProForm™ Head & Neck Immobilization for Proton Therapy: Features geometry that allows for direct access to effectively treat CNS patients. A homogeneous treatment area and soft gradient edges reduce beam degradation. The extension is quick and easy to attach and retains all the important benefits that the Universal Couchtop offers, including a rails-free treatment area. Many thermoplastic options will be displayed.
