Patients benefit from faster treatments, reduced radiation
Elekta Infinity allows for a total VMAT treatment session in no more than five minutes, including true VolumeView(TM) 3D cone beam images in three minutes and two minutes of highly conformal arc delivery of radiation. Head and neck treatments -- including daily 3D imaging -- can be delivered in less than five minutes with Elekta Infinity. Coupled with the Elekta Infinity system's clinically proven ultra-low 3D imaging dose, the speed of VMAT treatments can reduce the whole body dose of patients receiving treatment. Elekta Infinity also protects patients with real-time control point to control point monitoring throughout the process.
Due to the ability of Elekta Infinity to also treat in non-coplanar angles and non trans-axial planes, the system can yield similar or improved dosimetric performance compared to helical tomotherapy.
