RayPilot® installed at the Aarhus University Hospital
Micropos have installed RayPilot ® for increased precision in radiotherapy of prostate cancer at Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark.
Micropos and Aarhus University Hospital has signed a 12 month contract where the hospital buys RayPilot® consumable for clinical use.
Aarhus University Hospital and Micropos already has a research collaboration on future RayPilot® applications e.g. controlling the movements of the beam on a linear accelerator from the world’s largest manufacturer Varian, in order to follow an imaginary organ inside the body.
– It’s great that the cooperation that we started with the Aarhus University Hospital last year now gives fruit in that they have learned the system over time and thus built up a trust that allows them to now start clinical treatments and buy RayPilot® transmitters from us, says Tomas Gustafsson, CEO of Micropos Medical.
– Aarhus University Hospital is now the first hospital which will have two RayPilot® system in place for both clinical use and research on future applications which we believe will be a very successful combination says Micropos CEO, TomasGustafsson.
