Nomos takes ultrasound-guided radiation therapy to China

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

North American Scientific's radiation oncology division, Nomos, has received approval in China to market its ultrasound system for viewing cancerous tumors prior to the delivery of radiation therapy. The image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) system, called BAT Sxi, is designed to be compatible with all linear accelerators and most treatment planning products, said the Chatsworth, California firm. Noting that it had gained Chinese market go-ahead for its Peacock intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) product in September 2005, the company said it remained hopeful that it would have its full range of products available in China during fiscal 2006. The firm is also in the process of registering in China its Prospera I-125 brachytherapy seeds for treating prostate cancer.
