CMS gets 510(k) clearance for mobile patient positioning system
Radiation treatment software developer, CMS Inc. of St. Louis, Mo., announces 510(k) clearance of I-Beam, a self-contained mobile patient positioning system.

 The device uses ultrasound and other images in the treatment room to confirm the location of target organs or tumors.

 Advanced target imaging tool includes a 3D positioning technology with an integrated camera and free hand ultrasound probe that is registered through a localization target inserted in the shadow or wedge tray of any linear accelerator. This allows the system to be self-contained without the need for hardware mounting in the treatment room.
