About Micropos Medical AB (publ):

Micropos Medical AB (publ) (www.micropos.se) is a Swedish medical device start-up that was founded in 2003 as a result of four physicians’ long clinical experience in the therapeutic radiation oncology field (cancer treatment). The company has developed the RayPilot® system for increased precision in radiotherapy of prostate cancer. The RayPilot® system is an electromagnetic positioning system that initially enables real time position of the prostate for a fast and objective set-up and for continuous positioning during the treatment. A precise and safe localization of the tumor can dramatically improve the outcome of the treatment, particularly for hypofractionated protocols. The RayPilot® system consists mainly of three parts; a transmitter that is placed in the ROI, a receiving system that is placed directly on any existing treatment coach and software that continuously shows where the tumor is and where to beam. The transmitter is removed after the final treatment in order to enable MRI follow-up.
