Kodak showcased an upgrade to its oncology computed radiography system at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine meeting held last week. The Kodak 2000RT stands in for electronic portal imaging devices, digitally capturing data for portal localization, verification, and simulation used in radiation therapy. The system, which can support multiple treatment rooms, includes Kodak processing software to produce high-resolution, high-contrast images. The upgraded 2000RT CR system includes a 20.1-inch ultrahigh-definition flat-panel monitor, high-performance computer, and CD/DVD writer. The system will begin shipping next month in the U.S. and Canada.
