Orex Computed Radiography has developed a CR system optimized for use in radiotherapy. The Orex CR.RT captures megavoltage portal images for treatment verification as well as kilovoltage images for treatment simulation. Conventional portal cassettes cannot stand up to the high doses applied during radiotherapy, according to the company, requiring a technician to enter the room and replace the cassette at some point during delivery of the treatment. The Orex poRT CR cassette can remain in position for the duration of the treatment. The low-cost, compact new CR, which features an autoloading cassette, comes with a CR laser scanner, diagnostic cassettes for use with treatment simulators, portal cassettes for use with linear accelerators and cobalt-60 units, reusable phosphor plates, RT software, and PC-based review stations.
