Elekta’s (EKTA-B.ST) Clarity® 4D prostate monitoring system received clearance to automatically and instantaneously interrupt radiation beams upon detection that the prostate has moved out from position in prostate cancer cases. This monitoring 4D software has enabled doctors to continuously visualize the exact and precise location of the prostate during radiation therapy. The FDA has given a 510(k) clearance for Clarity to be used with Elekta's Response gating interface, giving physicians the potential and tools to saveguard the patient's normal and healthy tissues from overexposure to radiation while prostate radiotherapy is ongoing. Precise localization of the prostate is fundamental during precision radiotherapy. Radiation dosage will constantly be delivered into the prostate even if its position changes due to pressures fro
