SpaceOAR Vue™ SystemSpaceOAR Vue™ Absorbable Radiopaque Perirectal Hydrogel Spacer
SpaceOAR Vue System is intended to temporarily position the anterior rectal wall away from the prostate during radiotherapy for prostate cancer and in creating this space it is the intent of SpaceOAR Vue System to reduce the radiation dose delivered to the anterior rectum.
The SpaceOAR Vue System is composed of biodegradable material and maintains space for the entire course of prostate radiotherapy treatment and is completely absorbed by the patient’s body over time.
SpaceOAR Vue Hydrogel is the next-generation polyethylene glycol (PEG)-based hydrogel spacer that offers enhanced visibility via CT scan, designed to help physicians improve contouring accuracy and consistently position patients receiving prostate cancer radiation, as compared to SpaceOAR™ Hydrogel.1
