Elekta has CE marked its iViewC digital imaging system for sale in Europe. The product is intended for use with the Elekta Compact linear accelerator, which delivers radiation therapy to cancer patients. The iViewC uses real-time images to check patients are in the correct position during treatment, which improves patient safety, the Swedish firm says. It also allows faster set-up, positioning and patient throughput compared with X-ray film, as well as having other advantages such as the ability to store images digitally, and the lack of waiting time between image acquisition and analysis, Stockholm-based Elekta claims.
