Siemens nets U.K. Artiste order

Siemens Healthcare of Erlangen, Germany, has received an order for its Artiste radiation therapy system from the Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in the U.K.

Artiste is an integrated inline image-guided radiation therapy system designed for adaptive radiation therapy, which delivers a high-precision dose to a tumor while sparing healthy tissue. The system uses the company's 3D MVision megavoltage and 3D kVision kilovoltage technology.

The Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust's radiotherapy department is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2009.
