BSD adapts cancer treatment systems to deliver paediatric cancer therapy

BSD Medical : 31 July, 2008  (New Product)
BSD Medical’s most advanced cancer treatment system, the BSD-2000/3D/MR, has been adapted to treat children with cancer, as well as adults.
To accommodate the treatment of children, BSD Medical has developed treatment applicators that are specifically sized for small and medium-sized children, and that are capable of delivering paediatric cancer therapy during simultaneous Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the treatment in progress. The BSD-2000/3D/MR was developed as a combined effort between BSD Medical and Siemens Medical Systems. Initial targets for treatment of children’s cancers include germ cell tumours and soft tissue sarcomas.

BSD Medical is currently shipping a Sigma 40/MR paediatric applicator that has been purchased by Erlangen University Medical School in Germany. The new applicator will upgrade the university’s BSD-2000/3D/MR system to allow for its use in treating children’s cancers as well as adult cancers. The Sigma 40/MR was developed by BSD Medical and has the same patent protection as do all of BSD’s Sigma applicators.

The Erlangen University Medical School is a cancer treatment centre that has a long-standing tradition of offering world-class cancer care in Germany, including the use of BSD Medical’s systems. Erlangen University Hospital is at the forefront of international medical research and also plays an integral part in patient care in the Bavarian region of Germany.
