Orbital, Aktina sign distribution deal
Orbital Therapy has entered into agreement with Aktina Medical to distribute its ClearVue prone breast radiotherapy table in the United States.

The ClearVue table is a recent addition to the Bedford-Mass.-based breast cancer treatment manufacturer’s product line. Orbital Therapy said that the table places the patient in the prone position and increases the separation between the target anatomy and critical structures.

The product is currently in use in the United States and Europe.

Both companies will be showcasing the system at the 2009 American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) conference in Chicago.
