2. The device works for a limited time in patients with advanced stage thoracic and lumbar spine tumors whose life expectancy doesn’t permit fusion.

3. The CarboClear system allows the use of radiation therapy without harming surrounding tissue and lets radiation pass through without reduction of the dose level.
