The all-new Galan RT Solutions include the advanced Universal Couchtop™ MR Overlay from CIVCO Radiotherapy to aid clinicians in accurately determining the treatment target area, helping to improve patient safety by sparing healthy tissue from unnecessary radiation. The fiberglass and foam couchtop overlay core offers a high degree of stability for the head, neck and shoulders, and ProdigyTM 2 indexing at 7 cm increments to help physicians seamlessly transfer from imaging to treatment. A Three-Pin Lok-Bar™ offers providers the option to use existing MR-compatible devices by indexing them to the overlay, while adjustable ATLAS body coil technology allows clinicians to combine coils for extended patient coverage and enhanced workflow. Galan RT Solutions are rounded out with the optional MR Laser from LAP Laser and Mirada RTx Fusion software, which enable providers to achieve precise patient marking, accurate planning and exact positioning for successful treatment.

Dominic Smith, senior director, CT, PET/CT, and MR Business Units, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. said, “We are committed to offering our customers all of the diagnostic imaging tools they need to deliver accurate, confident and effective patient care.  He added, “With Galan RT Solutions on our advanced Vantage Galan 3T system, oncologists can simplify their complex MR exams and develop precise treatment plans that limit radiation dose to exactly where it is needed.”

Toshiba Medical is showcasing the new Galan RT Solutions suite at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, November 26 – December 1, 2017 (Booth #7330, North Hall B).
