iViewC Patient Position Verification Solution Designed to Optimize Treatment Accuracy for Elekta Compact Radiation Therapy System
iViewC, Elekta’s new digital imaging system for use with Compact (our cost-effective linear accelerator for radiation therapy) has achieved CE marking. Utilizing CCD (charge couple device) technology, iViewC affords high quality, real-time images that verify the patient is in the correct position at the time of treatment. This helps to ensure patient safety and reduces margins during therapy delivery.
The digital architecture of iViewC ensures rapid patient set up and positioning, faster patient throughput and valuable workflow efficiencies compared to X-ray film, such as digital image storage and no waiting time between image acquisition and analysis. Based on the world-renowned iViewGT™ image evaluation software, iViewC harnesses advanced CCD camera technology to provide high quality, real-time images for accurate patient position verification at a cost-effective price.
The first iViewC for Elekta Compact was shipped to the Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center in the Philippines. “The cost effective image-guidance capabilities offered by iViewC will enable workflow efficiency, higher patient throughput and cost savings,” says Erwin Q. Vito Cruz, Chairman, Department of Radiation Therapy, Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center. “This is ideal for high-workload government institutions such as ours.”
