Mobius gets NIH grant to boost rad therapy safety

Radiation oncology software provider Mobius Medical Systems said it has received a phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) to improve the safety of radiation therapy.

For the duration of the six-month project, Mobius will collaborate with Jonas Fontenot, PhD, of Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in Baton Rouge, LA, to develop an automated framework for verifying that each radiation therapy treatment is delivered exactly as planned.

There is an urgent need for efficient quality assurance tools to assist with increasingly complex radiation therapy treatments, Fontenot said in a statement. The project's aim -- to monitor the cumulative dose delivered throughout the treatment -- will bring significant improvement in the safety of radiation therapy for patients, he said.
