AEP Gold Fiducial Markers16 Jun 2017
AEP Linac has the pleasure to inform you about our latest addition to our productportfolio, AEP Gold Fuducial Markers (with and without needles).
AEP Gold Fiducial Markers are now notified and registered for the Belgian market.
For the available markers please check the publication list.
By using gold markers you can visualize the position of the tumor compared to surrounding (healthy) organs. Nowadays, the use of Gold Markers has become a standard procedure for the external beam treatment of the prostate.
Using Gold Markers allows us to:
- Target the prostate with great accuracy.
- Adapt to day to day variation in position of the prostate.
- Reduce the damage to healthy tissue surrounding the prostate, smaller margins.
This may help to reduce side effects (radiation delivered to healthy tissue), during treatment and in the long term.
The Gold Markers supplied by AEP Linac are sterile, available with and without needle and clearly visible on both X-ray, kV and MV imaging equipment, CT, Conebeam-CT and ultrasound.
With best regards,
The AEP Linac Team
