Radiotherapy patient positioning devices producer Qfix has introduced new Symphony patient transport system.
The new system has been developed to help in the setup, positioning and transfer of a patient for procedures involving imaging, external beam radiation therapy and brachytherapy, as well as other procedures requiring the transfer of a patient.
Symphony enables patients to be set up outside the treatment room, and then transport from virtually any modality to another, helping to avoid repositioning of patients multiple times throughout the course of imaging and treatment.
Qfix CEO and chief technology officer Dan Coppens said: "The Symphony provides a simple way to safely increase workflow efficiencies and throughput, enabling centers to treat more patients during typical treatment hours.”
The company has also launched new kVue One Couch Top for proton therapy positioning and immobilization.
Qfix has designed the new kVue One Proton Couch Top to meet the unique requirements of proton therapy for patient immobilization and beam transmission.
The firm is engaged in the development of novel immobilization and positioning solutions, which are compatible with multiple modalities such as Proton, Linac, CT, MRI, and other treatment and diagnostic imaging technologies.
In addition, Qfix has launched new Insight Overlay and Coil Holders for Siemens Magnetom Aera and Skyra, which enable MR imaging in the same position as treatment.
The company is showcasing the new products at the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) in Boston, which is being held from 25 to 28 September.
