Gold Fiducial Marker used in Tumor Visualization

What

Gold Markers are pure gold cylindrical beads or wires specially knurled to inhibit migration. They mark and display the position of tumors giving high precision in radiotherapy treatment leading to better cure in Cancer. Implantable fiducial markers provide a highly effective method of ensuring accurate target localization for tumors and organs which move in respect to external anatomy, as well as for the precision localization needed for stereotactic radiotherapy

Why use Gold as the Material in Fiducial Markers?

  • Gold is inert. It does not react with the tissue
  • Gold is very heavy. Its weight per volume is 20 times that of water and gold therefore stops the x-rays very effectively
  • Pure gold, 99,99% as in Gold Anchor, is soft and flexible

Why Fiducial Markers?

  • Fiducial markers in soft tissue for daily on board imaging with setup correction is the superior technique to achieve accurate tumor localization
    – This allows higher radiation doses to the tumor – increased likelihood of cure,
    – and lower doses to adjacent organs – reduced risk
  • Fiducial markers facilitate the positioning of patients
    – This enables faster setup time and makes it easier for technicians/nurses to do the on-board matching without specialist help from physicians – reduced cost – Easier work is safer work and gives healthier staff who have enough energy left to manage the whole day – increased total quality for patient and staff

Advantages

  • Accurate tumor localization using kilovoltage energy X-ray imaging
  • Allowing higher doses to the tumor – increased likelihood of cure
  • Reduces dose to adjacent organs – reduced risk
  • Safer insertion using a fine needle (0.5 mm in diameter versus 1.0-1.5 mm for needles used to insert traditional markers)
  • Enabling passage through almost any inner organ with no to very little risk – new patient groups reached
  • No need for local anaesthesia – more time efficient procedure and with less risk of infection and inner bleeding
