FOR SALE : parts for NOMOS BAT BELFRY
BAT uses 3-D ultrasound images to pinpoint the exact location of the prostate each time a patient is treated, allowing doctors to direct radiation to the precise spot.
BAT is an image-guided targeting system that provides fast ultrasound localization of a treatment target on a daily basis. Currently, it is most commonly used in conjunction with the treatment of prostate cancer. Combining ultrasound with a 3D tracking system and a touchscreen-based treatment room interface, BAT non-invasively pinpoints tumor targets rapidly and accurately at the time of a radiation therapy treatment. Its breakthrough ImageSync™ technology provides a continuous stream of ultrasound images that can be utilized in real time. Clinicians are able to dynamically move and align structure sets with the touch of a finger. The added functionality of its new optical camera and multi-application tracking solution will provide the ability to track objects or apparatus connected to the treatment table or to the patient.

Sewickley 21 June 2001Nomos Corporation has formed a partnership with Lynmed Systems Inc. to distribute Nomos products in the People's Republic of China and Hong Kong. Lynmed will distribute Nomos' Peacock System for the delivery of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), its Corvus IMRT Treatment Planning System, and BAT, the company's unique ultrasound organ locator system, as well as other oncology products.
The Nomos Corporation is a supplier of planning and delivery technology for IMRT. This precise new treatment approach, which Nomos introduced to the medical community, has been described as the most significant breakthrough in cancer therapy in the past 30 years. IMRT allows an escalated radiation dose to be delivered to the tumour while limiting exposure and damage to nearby healthy tissue. In effect, it is a non-invasive scalpel, cutting out the bad and leaving the good.
More than 10.000 patients have safely received IMRT treatments at the nearly 100 hospitals equipped with Nomos' clinically proven Peacock, Corvus and MIMiC systems in the United States and abroad. This represents over 90 percent of all commercially treated IMRT patients worldwide. In addition to IMRT, Nomos offers BAT, a unique ultrasound-based organ locator used in prostate and other soft tissue cancer treatments. Nomos is also the exclusive licensee for Peregrine, a Monte Carlo-based advanced dose calculation system developed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
