David A. Larson, M.D., Ph.D., Radiation Oncologist and Co-Medical Director at the Gamma Knife Program, Washington Hospital, adds, "Our increasing ability to control primary cancers creates increased urgency to detect and treat metastatic lesions. Naturally, we want to do so non-invasively when possible and with a resulting positive impact on quality of life. Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion, a remarkably sophisticated instrument, can safely and efficiently radiate multiple targets in a single session, and will surely benefit many patients."
New Linux-based software makes workflow more efficient and saves cost
Also on display will be Elekta neurosurgery workflow solutions, including Leksell SurgiPlan(R), Elekta's advanced image-based neurosurgical planning software, and GammaPlan(R) PFX(TM), a treatment planning system with remote capabilities that provides all the tools needed to make full use of the enhanced features of Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion. Leksell SurgiPlan and Leksell GammaPlan are now Linux-based for more efficient workflow and lower cost to hospitals and clinics. Leksell SurgiPlan also has a new module for pre-planning, which enables flexible planning of procedures, and automatic optimization of image quality.
Elekta Neuromag(R) system provides real-time MEG brain mapping with high spatial resolution
Elekta also will be exhibiting Elekta Neuromag(R), an advanced device
for performing magnetoencephalography (MEG). With a MEG system,
neurosurgeons, neurologists and other specialists are able to
non-invasively register nerve cell activity in the brain in real time. The
technology is used routinely for pre-surgical mapping and epilepsy
investigations as well as in clinical research. Elekta Neuromag features
