Toshiba Medical introduces the Galan RT Solutions suite of radiation therapy tools for accurate and efficient radiation treatment planning on the premium Vantage Galan 3T MR system.

Galan RT Solutions Offer Oncologists New Tools for Treatment Planning

CHICAGO, Calif., Nov. 29, 2017 Offering oncologists the high-quality tools they need for accurate and efficient radiation treatment planning, Toshiba Medical, a Canon Group company, introduces the Galan RT Solutions suite of radiation therapy tools, available on the premium Vantage GalanTM 3T MR system. Galan RT Solutions allow health care providers to precisely map MR data to PET/CT images to develop confident plans for radiation therapy and prioritize exceptional patient care.

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.

“We are committed to offering our customers all of the diagnostic imaging tools they need to deliver accurate, confident and effective patient care,” said Dominic Smith, senior director, CT, PET/CT, and MR Business Units, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. “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).
