Annual radiotherapy conference is an opportunity to learn about thermoplastics
Pictured at the College of Radiographers’ Annual Radiotherapy Conference in Brighton is Vertec Scientific product specialist David White discussing Klarity O-Type and S-Type thermoplastic and hardware, with superintendent radiographer Amy Dodd and pre-treatment radiographer Emma Morris of St Luke’s Cancer Centre in Redhill.
With an attendance of nearly 250 professionals, Vertec uses this popular meeting to present its involvement in new radiotherapy products and, in 2020, as a launch pad for an addition to the range of Klarity thermoplastic materials.
Klarity Blue is said to be fast and easy to set up, rigid when cool and has minimum shrinkage. For patient comfort, Blue masks cool quickly and can be removed after six minutes. St Luke’s is looking at being the first centre in the UK to use Klarity Light Green thermoplastic.
White explained: “The meeting is getting increasingly more important to Vertec as it gives us the opportunity, in a relaxed setting, to explain to radiotherapy professionals just what Vertec brings to their table.”
