北海道大学病院放射線治療科特任助教 西岡健太郎

 iGold is the first kit product in Japan that was codeveloped by Hokkaido University Hospital and Medikit
Co., Ltd.; it contains gold fiducial markers and introducer catheter set and can be used for prostate and liver cancer
radiotherapy. Because the markers are true sphere, the three-dimensional coordinates of the gravity center of
these markers are easily and accurately calculated. In addition, the markers are suitable for tumor tracking using
the pattern recognition template. Therefore, iGold is the golden standard in terms of positioning accuracy.
