Elekta Sees Record Attendance and Record Number of Submitted Abstracts at International Leksell Gamma Knife(R) Society Meeting in Quebec, Canada
Date:5/21/2008

sly administers hundreds of beams of low-intensity radiation that converge to deliver a single, therapeutic dose of radiation with pinpoint accuracy to the most difficult targets. Integrated treatment planning and delivery streamlines the radiosurgery process to treat even multiple brain lesions in a single, automated procedure.

Meeting the needs of both neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists, nearly 50,000 patients undergo Gamma Knife surgery every year on the several hundred Leksell Gamma Knife systems installed worldwide. The unique procedure has earned an outstanding scientific track record with thousands of peer-reviewed articles on treatment efficacy, improved quality of life for patients and cost efficiency. In fact, no other alternative treatment in this field has gained greater clinical acceptance.
