To train and upskill clinical professionals in precision radiotherapy
Swedish medtech company C-RAD, the global leader in surface guided radiation therapy (SGRT) solutions, has established its first-ever Experience Centre in India at Faridabad in Delhi-NCR.
Set up as a joint project with its India partner Marrsis Disha, the facility will train and upskill clinical professionals in precision radiotherapy. It will offer first-hand experience of C-RAD’s SGRT technologies and hands-on opportunities to explore how these can impact outcomes in cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy. SGRT is a tattoo-free alternative for patients who require radiation therapy. The technology uses advanced 3D camera technology to track and monitor patient movements during set-up and treatment.
Said Rohan Mehtani, CEO, Marrsis Disha, who are C-RAD India partners and host for the Experience Centre: “Collaborating with C-RAD as their educational partners, we want to use this Experience Centre as a platform to promote cutting-edge technologies like SGRT. There is a huge unmet demand of radiation therapy equipment in India and not every patient is able to get treatment in time."
The Experience Centre is equipped with C-RAD Catalyst+ HD system with complete software suite, including modules for respiratory gating, patient setup and positioning, and motion monitoring. It demonstrates accurate patient setup prior to the treatment and continuous monitoring of patient during a treatment fraction. The technology provides accuracy and safety for the patient to support high precision treatment techniques as well as efficiency in a complex treatment workflow.
