Elekta and Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center Sign Strategic Multi-Center Radiation Therapy Systems Agreement
Date:6/5/2008

ATLANTA, June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta, a world class leader in advanced radiation therapy and radiosurgery, has been selected to supply multiple Elekta Synergy(R) digital linear accelerator systems to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center over the next few years.

The new Elekta Synergy systems will provide expanded capacity for advanced Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), which Mary Bird Perkins (MBP) began providing to patients four years ago. The new systems will provide for MBP's current locations as well as the organization's long-term regional growth into new markets. MBP has locations in Baton Rouge, Hammond and Covington and is building a fourth location in Gonzales, LA.

Each of the estimated nine new treatment systems will include 3D X-ray Volume Imaging (XVI) and some will include ElektaVMAT Volumetric intensity Modulated Arc Therapy, enhancing MBP's Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and IGRT arsenal.

"We feel that Elekta is 'first class in its field' and provides dynamic, practical and reliable treatment options," said Todd D. Stevens, President and CEO, MBP. Every cancer case is unique and personal, and Mary Bird Perkins makes sure that it has the best radiation therapy options available to our treatment team so every cancer patient has individualized, optimal treatment."

The Center will be treating all types of cancer with the Elekta Synergy systems, from simple to the most complex cases. Elekta Synergy is a fully-digital linear accelerator with an integrated 3D imaging system that simultaneously acquires and reconstructs image data on the target and surrounding critical structures as a whole volume in a single gantry sweep. Because imaging occurs at the time of treatment, uncertainties due to organ motion or deformation and slight differences in patient set-up can be eliminated.

In its search for the best solution for patient care, Mary Bird Perkins diligently analyzed all proposals and mobilized a team
