Elekta Displays Complete Volumetric Intensity Modulated Arc Therapy Solutions at ESTRO
Date:9/12/2007

lanning studies show that performing Volumetric Intensity Modulated Arc Therapy provides optimized efficiency and helical-like conformality in a shorter standard treatment delivery time than conventional IMRT, which increases patient throughput and patient tolerance. It can be used on any part of the anatomy, and unlike other systems that are limited to co-planar angles; the Elekta VMAT system enables the user to deliver extremely conformal treatment to tumors in all planes, while minimizing the dose to at- risk organs."

While the IMAT technique has been investigated for clinical use in recent years as an alternative to Tomotherapy, Elekta has brought the process of Volumetric IMAT to fruition in one complete package. Deighton says, "Until now, the IMAT concept has been just that: a concept with some planning studies theorizing the benefits of IMAT to patients. Elekta was the first to market with the complete IMAT solution, now with Volumetric IMAT." Clinical use is expected to begin in late 2007.

In addition to displays on Elekta VMAT technology at ESTRO, Elekta will unveil a new and innovative product to add to the Elekta family, and feature displays on the latest generation of Image Guided Radiation Therapy. A range of Medical Intelligence motion management solutions including patient positioning devices will be displayed at the Elekta booth.

* VMAT is a work in progress and currently not available for distribution.
