CIVCO's Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System remotely repositions patients with robotic 6 degrees of freedom giving Varian Linac users the ability to achieve sub-millimeter positioning accuracy from outside the treatment room Protura's integration with Varian treatment technology automatically opens the relevant patient information in Protura software, drawing it from Varian's 4DTC System, automatically loads patient shift data to match Varian's On-Board Imager™ (OBI) kV imaging system, and automatically imports the Varian pedestal location.  Combined with CIVCO's comprehensive motion management solutions, Protura is optimized to handle the rigors of a busy clinic while improving efficiency and throughput.  Protura and Varian integration, along with AlignRT® 3D Imaging System integration will be demonstrated in the CIVCO booth throughout the meeting.

CIVCO's team of motion management experts will demonstrate additional treatment solutions and how they simplify the clinician's workday and improve workflow and efficiency between imaging and treatment. These solutions for head & neck, breast, lung, abdomen and prostate will be spotlighted in-booth on interactive touchscreen displays.

  • Universal Couchtop™ Long Extension
    The Universal Couchtop Long Extension (UCT LE) provides seamless imaging and treatment planning with dosimetrically matched couchtops that feature a large, junction-free & artifact-free treatment area. The unique profile of the UCT LE allows CIVCO's SBRT Body Pro-Lok bridges to attach directly to the couchtop, enabling a seamlessly integrated SBRT immobilization platform.  
  • trUpoint ARCH™ SRS/SRT System
    The newly released trUpoint ARCH improves the patient's experience during SRS/SRT treatment with non-invasive, rigid and secure immobilization of the head.  Multiple immobilization methods are used, allowing the clinician to customize each setup based on the patient and clinical protocols.
  • Body Pro-Lok™ SBRT Immobilization
    Body Pro-Lok SBRT Immobilization allows for customized setups utilizing bridges that secure directly to the couchtop, thus eliminating the need for overlays and ensuring equivalent setups between CT and treatment. The Body Pro-Lok System provides a simple, modular and reproducible foundation for any high-precision SBRT program, adapting to any department's needs.
  • FreedomView™ Thermoplastic Mask
    The newest of CIVCO's Tranquility Series™ thermoplastic masks was developed with patient comfort in mind.  The mask provides pre-cut eye and mouth holes allowing the patient to see clearly and breathe easier.  Rigid immobilization is maintained through the use of reinforced strips and smooth edges provide comfort around eye and mouth holes. The unique open pattern, balanced with a traditional rigid mask design, creates the stability that head & neck treatments demand.
