that Elekta systems had many advantages over the competition, especially in imaging capabilities. We decided to make the switch to Elekta."

"We'll be replacing our current IMRT techniques with VMAT," he explains. "We're looking to VMAT to increase throughput, but more importantly to reduce treatment times for our patients. That, in turn, will reduce the chance of patient movement during the treatment, another big concern, especially in lung and abdomen applications. We feel we can deliver a better, more precise treatment to the patient by delivering the dose in a shorter time."

Edward Soffen, M.D., Medical Director, says, "VMAT is the newest, latest, greatest technology for conforming the beam as closely as possible to the target. Although we're doing a good job now sparing healthy tissue, we're taking it to the next level of sophistication with VMAT. It's really advanced technology that will force others to be competitive with us, in terms of providing the most sophisticated technology available. We wanted the latest tools that really hone in on the tumor, give us better image guidance, and are compatible with our other hardware and software."

The new Elekta systems will be installed in August 2010. "As a team, we've spent a lot of time and effort evaluating treatment systems," says Dr. Soffen, "and I commend our administration for allowing us to have the best available tools to treat our patients."

"The management team at Elekta has a desire to develop clinically relevant techniques, and we have found Elekta to be far more personable and approachable than the other corporations," adds Robert Smith. They will definitely work with us to give our patients the best treatments possible."
