Elekta Launches New Linear Accelerator at 2007 ESTRO to Expand Cancer Treatment Availability
Date:9/10/2007

BARCELONA, Spain, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta today unveiled a new member of the Elekta family of linear accelerators at the European Society of Therapeutic Radiation Oncologists (ESTRO) 2007 meeting. At an 11 a.m. unveiling ceremony in the Elekta booth, Elekta President and CEO Tomas Puusepp announced the launch of Elekta Compact(TM), a new addition to Elekta's product line of linear accelerators that offers an easy to implement, more affordable solution for radiation therapy.

Elekta Compact purposefully was designed with a single low-energy photon beam and a small footprint specifically, so it is ideally positioned for use in a small treatment room and in specialized markets. Its efficient design makes it more accessible to a wider range of health care providers who want to give their patients the optimal care in radiation therapy. "Elekta is committed to fighting cancer and enhancing patients' quality of life," says Puusepp. "With the addition of Elekta Compact to our product portfolio, Elekta is now a provider of linear accelerators across the full spectrum of price and performance specifications."

Smaller footprint targets untapped markets

In rooms that previously contained a Cobalt unit, or a treatment room with limited space, Elekta Compact may be an appropriate first step. "For former Cobalt users who want a simple linear accelerator that is a 'workhorse' in providing cancer treatment with fewer complications, Elekta Compact can fill a treatment room that might otherwise lay empty," says Olof Sanden, Executive Vice President, Elekta, Europe.

Elekta Compact was designed and positioned to give all customers access to this exceptional product. "We haven't forgotten that there's a need for appropriate products to meet all customers' needs," says Russ Cox, Manager of Oncology
