Attend exclusive Macromedics presentations at the 2019 ASRT conference in Chicago

Waddinxveen, the Netherlands, August 28, 2019

Macromedics, the innovation leader in patient positioning solutions for radiation oncology, is proud to present the Double Shell Positioning System® and the OmniBoard™ during two exclusive presentations at the ASRT Radiation Therapy Conference. The conference will be held at McCormick Place, which is situated on the lakefront in Chicago, Illinois. 

Presentation "Double Shell Positioning for SRS: Ease of Implementation, a Year in Review" 

On Monday, September 16, ASRT members are able to attend this presentation on the ease of implementation of the DSPS system®, a patented product of Macromedics. This will be offered at 8:00 am and 10:40 am.

This system consists of 2 masks made of special thermoplastic materials. The patented material of the occipital mask is rigid enough to hold the patient’s head during moulding. There is no need for an additional head support and there is full access to customize the mask around neck and occipital bones. The facial mask is not overstretched and therefore extremely rigid. Both masks do not shrink, resulting in a comfortable set-up for the patient. The presentations will be held from 8-9 A.M. and from 10.40-11.40 A.M in room S102D. 

Presentation “OmniBoard™ - One Board Infinite Solutions - An RT’s Dream for Patient Positioning”

Also on Monday, September 16, an exclusive presentation on the OmniBoard™ will be held for ASRT members at 1.10 P.M. and 3.50 P.M. The MacroMedics OmniBoard™ All-In-One patient positioning system is the only all-in-one solution designed specifically with therapists in mind to optimize the things they care about most: Efficiency, Versatility, Reproducibility and Safety. The OmniBoard offers a unique Breast Treatment Module that is extremely light. With a weight of only 2,8 kg, the Breast Treatment Module is considerably lighter than any other stand-alone breastboard.

Conference participants can visit Macromedics at booth 1 from September 15 until September 17 2019. ASRT not only offers congress participants a unique chance to meet Macromedics, but also enables them to attend the two presentations as mentioned above.
