Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG: Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG announces the launch of SagiNova® and SagiPlan® for HDR brachytherapy

Seneffe, Belgium, April 23rd, 2015.
Eckert&Ziegler BEBIG is proud to announce the global launch of its new
afterloader SagiNova® and the corresponding treatment planning system
SagiPlan® at the 3rd ESTRO Forum in Barcelona, Spain.

SagiNova® is derived from the latin words 'Sagitta' and 'novum' which mean
arrow and new. With SagiNova®, Eckert&Ziegler BEBIG offers the most modern
HDR afterloader with precise, arrow-like targeting. "It is our ambition to
incorporate customer needs into product development. The newest technology
inside fulfills today's global customer demands regarding safety, seamless
workflows, and cost efficiency as well as regulatory demands; it also builds
a platform for further development," says Abel Luzuriaga, Managing Director
of Eckert&Ziegler BEBIG.

SagiNova® incorporates the outstanding features of the MultiSource®
afterloader such as the choice between a cobalt-60 and iridium-192 source,
the integrated In-Vivo Dosimetry System, automatic path length measurement
and digital source position verification. A new hardware and software
platform allows for new features like the highly customizable tool QAssist
that supports users in a straightforward way to adhere to the highest quality
assurance standards with full digital documentation. It offers pre-defined
quality assurance tests which verify whether the system and critical
components are operating correctly. QAssist configurations can be shared with
partnering departments to allow for consistent quality reporting.
The remote support implemented with SagiNova® allows for short response times
and enhanced service support. Additionally, the 40 channel support of
MultiSource® was refined to 50 channel support in SagiNova®.

The new SagiNova® and SagiPlan® graphical user interfaces (GUI) were developed
in cooperation with brachytherapy experts and usability engineers leading to
the development of the next level of smooth and efficient workflow guidance.
Besides the new intuitive and modern GUI, SagiPlan® includes an improved
prostate module regarding image registration and treatment visualization
features. Additionally, a needle placement helper was introduced with
automatic needle labeling and channel template assignment report was added
together with many other features to allow for an improved workflow.

SagiNova® and SagiPlan® have CE mark. 510(k) for SagiNova® was obtained
recently which enables Eckert&Ziegler BEBIG to expand into the U.S.
brachytherapy market with an estimated 2,400 radiation therapy centers. For
any further requests, please contact your local Eckert&Ziegler BEBIG
representative or visit us on ESTRO booth #1500 from April 24th to April
27th, 2015!
