John Lapré adds: "The most striking advantage of the ImagingRing is the spacious 121 cm bore diameter. The wide bore enables patient imaging in the lithotomy ("knees up") position for the majority of brachytherapy cases - gynecological and prostate cancer patients."
The ImagingRing product line was developed by medPhoton GmbH (Salzburg, Austria). Elekta has exclusive distribution rights for the mobile ImagingRing in brachytherapy. "On behalf of all at medPhoton, I'm very happy with the collaboration with Elekta," says Heinz Deutschmann, CEO of medPhoton. "Many of us have a background in radiation oncology, where we've developed technology for adaptive image-guided solutions for years. It's good to see that we're closing the loop now, with the mobile ImagingRing coming to robotically assisted, image-guided brachytherapy."
