Los Angeles Cancer Center Acquires IVS (Image Viewing System for EPID & IGRT) from LinaTech

LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES, August. 31, 2011 -- A leading cancer clinic has acquired LinaTech's cost-effective IVS System for use on one of their linear accelerators to begin delivering advanced radiotherapy treatments. The IVS will allow Valley Cancer Institute to provide more precise radiotherapy, streamline workflow to allow more time to be spent attending to patient needs and less time developing film, store patient images and records electronically, and cut down on environmental waste.

James Gonzalezlead medical physicist, said, "VCI made a clinical decision to acquire and implement the use of LinaTech's IVS for the benefit of patients undergoing radiotherapy treatment. The IVS will make IMRT treatment more precise by incorporating IGRT so that the anatomical area of interest is imaged and verified on a daily basis. This is an improvement in treatment to ensure precise dose delivery to patients."

Valley Cancer Institute serves many hundreds of patients each year and this number is expected to increase due to the acquisition of the IVS System. The Institute uses equipment and software from a variety of suppliers but is moving more towards using LinaTech as their main supplier for specific RT machines and software.
