I have read very little about the Calypso GPS procedure.  It is a system that uses GPS (global positioning sattelites )to track prostate tumors for specific radiation therapy.  The procedure apparently is being used in Sweden and is not yet available in the US.  I think the Calypso developers are located in Seattle.
