Christie implements external compression technique

Oncology Imaging Systems sales manager Mike Holroyd, radiographer Bethany Cheetham, pre-treatment radiographer Claire Clarkson, pre-treatment principal radiographer James McGovern, pre-treatment principal radiographer for protons Thomas Edwards and student radiographer Kacey Pindair.

The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester, is expanding its treatment offering and will soon be able to deliver SABR treatments to liver and pancreatic patients.  It  has chosen Oncology Imaging Systems to supply the Qfix DoseMax kVue SBRT Bridges integral to the technique.

The trust selected the equipment as it works seamlessly with the existing kVue couch tops across the network, allowing it to utilise the latest DoseMax with additional localisation points and indexing.

Principal pre-treatment radiographer Tom Edwards said: “We are thrilled to receive the SBRT Bridges.  This means patients will be able to receive SABR for several previously excluded treatment sites.”  He added that the continuing partnership between The Christie and Oncology Imaging Systems has facilitated compatibility over the radiotherapy network and allows the trust to continue offering the most up-to-date treatments for its patients.
