CIVCO showcases new additions to portfolio
BOSTON—CIVCO Medical Solutions introduced new positioning products as well as a new tracking and verification system at the 50th annual meeting of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) this week.

The Kalona, Iowa-based company debuted its SBRT Body-Lok, a modular system that functions as a base for indexable patient positioning, secure immobilization and efficient patient transport.

CIVCO also highlighted its Individual Head Support, a new device that provides customized head and neck positioning during radiation therapy treatment and diagnostic procedures, using specially shaped impression foam combined with fabric-coated thermoplastic. It is available with Type-S or Posifix baseplates and either normal or hyper shapes, the company said.

Also on display was the new RFSuite tracking and verification system which allows facilities to track patients, charts, film folders and positioning devices as well as facilitating accessory verification on a linac table.

The company has partnered with Solstice Medical to bring this technology into the mainstream for radiation oncology, according to Geoffrey Dalbow, chief technology officer at CIVCO.
