SpaceOAR Vue™ Hydrogel for Urology

The only iodinated hydrogel spacer for prostate cancer radiation therapy

Designed for enhanced visibility via CT scan

Visible on a CT scan, SpaceOAR Vue™ Hydrogel is designed to aid in visualization of the target region, enabling efficient patient positioning for radiation treatment.¹ In Dr. Randall Brenneman’s and Dr. Brian Baumann’s experience, SpaceOAR Vue Hydrogel appears (or seems) to polymerize slightly slower compared to SpaceOAR “making it more forgiving with regards to suboptimal placement in the perirectal space.”²

SpaceOAR Vue Hydrogel could be a suitable imaging option for prostate cancer patients or patients with implanted metallic devices who cannot undergo an MRI. It may also reduce the need for post-implant MRI scans leading to cutting out-of-pocket costs for patients.¹

“I think the paramount reason to use SpaceOAR Vue is an ability to view your results easily. It’s cost-effective for patients to get a post-procedural CT scan as opposed to an MRI.”
