SimpliCT part of unique innovative operating theatres MITeC

On Thursday 12 November 2015 the three new innovative MITeC (Medical Innovation & Technology Expert Center) operating theatres (OTs) were opened in the Radboudumc by Her Majesty Queen Máxima of The Netherlands. The introduction of these MITeC OT's brings together operating, 3D X-ray photography and MRI. With this initiative, the Radboudumc (the Radboud University Medical Centre in Nijmegen, the Netherlands) is making a significant contribution to sustainable innovations in care.

The exceptional combination of many high-quality medical technologies within one block of three operating theatres (hybrid OT, MRI OT and basic OT), which are directly interconnected, provide abilities which have not previously been achievable. The goal of MITeC is create a state-of-art OR environment with optimal imaging facilities but also keeping patient safety at the core. SimpliCT helps to maximize radiation protection to patient and staff while procedure times are kept as low as possible.

One of the purposes of MITeC is to introduce 1-day-treatment for different types of cancers. For this purpose SimpliCT is used to help the operator in guiding ablation needles to suspicious lesions along an advanced needle path planning. The pointing laser of SimpliCT can visualize any difficult needle path and minimizes the number of needle manipulations, leading to a very efficient needle placement. With the advanced possibilities of needle path planning at the hybrid OT, the positioning of multiple ablation needles in combination with SimpliCT will have a significant impact on these procedures.

The MITeC is also used as a "field lab" in where doctors, companies and researchers can develop new ideas. The idea is that SimpliCT can play its roll in these developments and help optimize new procedures.

March 2012, NeoRad presents results of comparison study

At SIR 2012 PhD candidate Maarten Kroes from Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center presented results on a comparison study between freehand and SimpliCT guided CBCT procedures. His findings show that the use of SimpliCT reduces the radiation dose to the operator and the patient by more than 30%.

November 2010, SimpliCT with ceiling suspension is launched at Medica 2010

SimpliCT can be attached to every Mavig Portegra II system. Each Portegra system has two pins wheras mostly only one is in use. By simply adding a spring arm to the ceiling column every Portegra system may be equipped with a SimpliCT, also in retrofit.

The ceiling suspension provides instant set up times, greater ease of use and the same gigh accuracy as known from the floor model.

NeoRad has won the prestigeous Award for Design Excellence for SimpliCT®.
