In order to minimise complications, many prostate cases are now being treated with IMRT and IGRT. To ensure you are hitting your target, you need to accurately visualise your target. By using gold markers, you can clearly see the prostate whether you are using portal imaging, kV image pairs or CBCT. Since the prostate can move with the pelvis, relying on bony anatomy can be risky.
For CT and MR, the PolyMarkTM marker is ideal. It is fabricated of a biocompatible polymer, has virtually no artifact in CT, is clearly visible in MR and can be detected with ease in most kV based IGRT solutions.
Markers designed for breast tumour localisation.
For CT and MR, the PolyMarkTM marker is ideal. It is fabricated of a biocompatible polymer, has virtually no artifact in CT, is clearly visible in MR and can be detected with ease in most kV based IGRT solutions. The PolyMark has a spiral-cut surface to inhibit migration.

- Produce an image that is non-biological in nature and easily discernible from surrounding anatomy.
- Use the nodes to prevent marker migration.
The first node-based implanted marker. FlexiMarc Markers are designed specifically to produce an image that is easily recognized by the human eye and IGRT software. These unique markers are fabricated of pure gold and their shape inhibits migration (pat. pending).
Based on the sound principals established with the FlexiMarc the new FlexiMarc G/T uses a radiolucent titanium connector as opposed to the traditional gold connector found in the FlexiMarc (pat. pending).
The first of its kind, a point or linear marker designed to image as well in MR as it does in CT. The FusionCoil also appears in all current IGRT solutions, MV and kV alike. The coil is fabricated of pure gold with a special biocompatible alloy as its centre. The alloy provides the necessary signal so that a clear black dot appears on an MRI study making image fusion much more robust and reliable. The 5 or 20mm long open coil design ensures that the marker will not migrate once placed. (pat.pending).
Pointcoil Markers are optimal in situations where the end user requires a single point. They are fabricated of a 5mm gold coil with one single central node. (pat. pending).
FlexiCoil Markers were designed with the same imaging advantages as FlexiMarc but the nodes are placed inside a pure gold coil. These nodes provide clearly definable endpoints for this flexible marker. (pat. pending).
CyberKnife System markers
Markers that can be tracked with the CyberKnife image system.
The FusionCoil marker is manufactured using a unique combination of gold and titanium alloy designed to image equally as well in CT and MR. They are assembled and sterilised with (2) markers and a 15mm long bio-absorbable spacer preloaded in an 18 GA needle ready for implant. This is perfect for CyberKnife where the user wants to do image fusion and fiducial tracking.
