Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, with an estimated 9.6 million related deaths in 2018. What is even more surprising is that approximately 70% of deaths from cancer will occur in Low to Middle-Income Countries (LMICs). This huge disparity between High-Income Countries (HICs) and Low-Middle Income Countries (LMICs) is simply unacceptable.
While there have been significant advancements in radiation therapy technology, these modern digital solutions are simply too expensive for cancer clinics in LMICs. These solutions are currently not affordable nor easily adoptable.
EmpowerRT is a clinically-proven, low cost solution that empowers LMIC cancer clinics to provide 3D and IMRT radiotherapy that has been successfully used to control cancers in HICs; the same cancers that contribute to an extremely high mortality rate in LMICs.
All while using existing radiotherapy machines and current workflow.
