A Great Fiducial Marker That Helps Improve Radiotherapy

Works Also On MRI, Thanks To Unique Material

Minimally invasive

Industry leading thin needles

Great Visibility

Easily register kV, CT and MR images

Instant Stability

Multiple cut-outs allow the marker to fold

A fiducial marker made in Sweden

The Gold Anchor has been invented and developed by Ingemar Naslund, M.D, Associate Professor, working as head of the Division of Radiation Theraphy, Radiumhemmet, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden for 20 years, where he was one of the inventors of the SBRT technique in 1991 together with Ingmar Lax and Henric Blomgren.

Safe to use in almost any inner organ

  • Prostate
  • Liver
  • Pancreas
  • Kidney
  • Adrenal gland
  • Lung
  • Cervix and other gynecologic organs
  • Oligomets in abdomen
  • Inguinal metastases
  • Head & neck
  • Etc.

Varian’s Advanced IGRT & Motion package includes the Auto Beam Hold (ABH) feature. ABH is an imaging technique that monitors the patient during radiation treatments.

This is achieved by detecting implanted fiducial markers in radiographic images acquired during treatment. The treatment beam is paused when ABH observes a discrepancy between the planned markers positions and the detected positions.

Enabling state of the art radiotherapy

  • TrueBeam Auto-Beam-Hold
  • Frameless SBRT
  • Proton treatments
  • CyberKnife treatments
  • Tomotherapy treatments

 Financially beneficial

Fiducial marker based IGRT vs. CBCT (without markers)

  • Faster, safer and easier positioning using either orthogonal 2D images or marker detection software on kV/CBCT.
  • Enabling tracking of intrafraction motion.
  • Providing confidence to hypofractionate.

Gold Anchor vs. traditional fiducial markers

  • Reduced complications from implantation.
  • Less costly to implant percutaneously than endoscopically.
  • Shorter lead times.
