CORALVILLE, Iowa, Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CIVCO Radiotherapy, the leading provider of high quality, innovative, patient-centric

radiotherapy solutions, will be exhibiting and demonstrating its latest head & neck, breast and Universal Couchtop treatment solutions September 24-27 in San Diego at the 2017 American
Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Meeting, booth 1347.

Solutions demonstrated in-booth by CIVCO's motion management experts will include: 

Universal Couchtop™ Long ExtensionThe Universal Couchtop Long Extension is now available on Varian's TrueBeam® and VitalBeam Radiotherapy Systems (version 2.7 and higher software, including PerfectPitch 6DoF and 4DoF couches). The couchtop contains no support mechanism to move or account for during planning and utilizes 7 cm indexing. The dosimetrically matched couchtops are available for most major CT and Linac models to provide seamless imaging and treatment planning.

Chabner XRT® Radiation BraThe Chabner XRT Radiation Bra provides optimal breast support, patient comfort and dignity, and reproducibility during simulation, planning and radiation treatment. All points of attachment are indexable so the patient can be custom-fit at the time of simulation and throughout treatment. Designed by a female radiation oncologist, Elizabeth Chabner Thompson, M.D., M.P.H. will be in-booth and presenting at ASRT conference courses.

FirmFit™ Thermoplastics with SnapFrame™ Type-S™FirmFit Thermoplastic is now available for Type-S system users in a unique drape-style frame design. The segmented frame, once draped over the patient's face, snaps together into a continuous piece on the baseplate. Drape-style masks require less stretching of the material than continuous frame masks, resulting in a more rigid mask.

Sentient SuitesThe Sentient experience brings the comforting power of nature and personalized treatment experience to every patient by offering them control and choice.  With the tap of a finger on an iPad, a patient can choose their favorite lighting color, music, and video for a soothing, personal experience.
