News Release - October 19, 2009
Velocity Medical Solutions(R) Announces New Subscription Service to Provide Adaptive Radiation Therapy (ART) Software Tools to Hospitals and Radiation Oncology Centers With Minimal Up-Front Capital InvestmentATLANTA, GA - (HSMN NewsFeed) - Velocity Medical Solutions, a privately-held, Atlanta-based company founded in 2005 by a team of seasoned oncology professionals with expertise in clinical outcomes, radiation treatment planning and software development for oncology, today announced the availability of a new subscription service designed to quickly provide Adaptive Radiation Therapy to hospitals and radiation oncology centers with minimal up-front capital investment. With less than a $5,000 up-front investment, the subscription service provides a workstation computer and all software to equip radiation oncology departments with the most advanced imaging platform available. This subscription service resulted from a new cost-effective method of product demonstration and delivery service. "Hospitals across the country are struggling with financial pressures and very limited or frozen capital budgets for technologies that can enhance patient care such as the Velocity-AI(TM) system," said Richard diMonda, President of Velocity Medical Solutions. "We examined our approach and identified a number of ways to remove unnecessary costs, resulting in our ability to offer this new subscription service with a very minimal up-front capital investment."
The Velocity-AI(TM) Advanced Imaging Solutions system provides advanced visualization, fusion and metabolic assessment tools to better assist oncology professionals in the management of cancer patients in all stages of the treatment process. The Adaptive Radiation Therapy platform provides dose tracking and automated re-planning tools that allow clinicians to compare dose planned to actual dose delivered throughout the treatment cycle. Adaptive re-contouring saves significant time when re-planning is required due to anatomical changes throughout a patient's treatment. Velocity-AI's deformable fusion and automated atlas-based segmentation tools allow a more accurate incorporation of diagnostic imaging into the treatment planning process and provide significant time savings in the initial contouring process. These tools represent the latest developments in clinical advancements available to oncology professionals.
The Velocity-AI Advance Imaging Solutions system enables physicians to use multi-modality imaging data sets to develop radiation therapy treatment plans. Visit the company's web site at www.VelocityMedical.com for additional product and company information.
