Cianna Medical Focuses on Radiation Safety
The New York Times’ January 23, 2010 article, The Radiation Boom: Radiation Offers New Cures, Ways to Do Harm, caused quite a stir among healthcare professionals and consumers alike.
In response, ASTRO issued a six-point plan to improve the safety and quality of radiation therapy. The plan stresses the need for robust quality assurance and extensive training for personnel. Read ASTRO’s Six-Point Patient Protection Plan
Cianna Medical is committed to ensuring safe and effective radiation therapy with the SAVI applicator. When you choose to offer SAVI, every member of your clinical team – including physicians, physicists and clinical staff – receives extensive training in radiation treatment planning and delivery with the device.
In addition to on-site training and support, we offer a number of web-based seminars featuring techniques and considerations for surgeons, radiation oncologists and physicists delivering brachytherapy with SAVI. Access these seminars at our Physician Education Programs page, or contact your account manager for more information on Cianna Medical’s comprehensive training program.
