To facilitate accurate and efficient radiation treatment planning, Toshiba Medical, Tustin, Calif., has introduced the Galan RT Solutions suite of radiation therapy tools, available on the premium Vantage Galan 3T MR system. Galan RT Solutions allow healthcare providers to map MR data to PET/CT images precisely to develop confident plans for radiation therapy and prioritize 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 Prodigy 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,” says Dominic Smith, senior director of CT, PET/CT, and MR business units at 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.”
