Successful launch of C-RAD’s Global Clinical Training Program

l Clinical Training Program

Press release 2016-11-23

C-RAD, in cooperation with two academic partners, has launched a clinical
training program for surface image guided radiation therapy (SIGRT). The first
edition took place at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San
Antonio focusing on SIGRT for breast cancer treatments.

The scope of the Global Clinical Training Program is to provide users of C-RAD
technology with a profound training to optimize usage of SIGRT within radiation
therapy and therewith elevate the standard of care in the home clinics of the
participants. “With the program, we are targeting users of C-RAD SIGRT
technology that have already experience using the system and aim to extend the
clinical application of their system or seek for a refresher training to
optimize their individual implementation.” says Tim Thurn, CEO of C-RAD.

The teaching and learning content has been developed with academic partners and
selected users from Europe and from the U.S. The first two partner sites to
host the clinical training program are the Skåne University Hospital in Lund,
Sweden and University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. The
educational leadership of the program is with Malin Kuegele, M.Sc. and Alonso
N. Gutiérrez, Ph.D.

“This training program is very valuable for me. It provides me with information
about how and why the C-RAD System works. The instructors are very passionate
with their presentations. As a physicist recently starting to use C-RAD at our
main campus at Yale, I appreciate this training course very much.” Says Huixiao
Chen, Ph.D., Medical Physicist from the Department of Therapeutic Radiology at
Yale University School of Medicine.

The courses will be offered on a regular basis with changing clinical topics.
The program is conducted in small groups of up to 10 participants. The format
enables efficient learning based on practical training and creates a platform
to share experiences. “It is our aim, that participants return to their home
clinics after the training course and implement the new experience and
learnings within their treatment facility. The feedback from the participants
was very positive.” says Tim Thurn.

The clinical training program is part of C-RAD’s Life Cycle Business and can be
ordered as part of a service contract or as a separate service. The training
program enrollment is on a rolling base. The next edition will be conducted in
the U.S. during spring 2017.

“We are very committed to our customers and have a strong interest, that SIGRT
in general is seeing a fast-growing acceptance in the market. The clinical
training school is a unique format, where C-RAD is concentrating on ensuring
the quality and providing the platform to this linear accelerator vendor
neutral educational program.” says Tim Thurn.
