Elekta Announces Monaco 5.0 -- Comprehensive Radiation Treatment Planning Capabilities Brought Together in One System

ATLANTA, Sept. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Elekta today announced Monaco® 5.0, which consolidates support for all of the most clinically useful delivery techniques in a single treatment planning system, and features refinements to planning speed and precision.

"This latest Monaco release brings together the best capabilities of Elekta's treatment planning portfolio into a single planning system to achieve a greater level of convenience and clinical versatility for the radiation oncology team," says Todd Powell, Executive Vice President of Elekta Software. "And, with a new system architecture, sophisticated treatment plans can now be developed with speeds often not attainable with previous planning systems."

Uniquely relying on an advanced Monte Carlo dose engine – considered the gold standard for calculating delivered radiation – Monaco is now a truly comprehensive treatment planning system, supporting the full breadth of radiation therapy techniques, including VMAT, IMRT, and 3D conformal radiation therapy. The system is exceptionally equipped for advanced stereotactic therapies, such as SRS and SRT, with added planning support for specialized beam shaping devices, including circular cones. 

"Developing treatment plans can be a resource-intensive task that limits a clinic's productivity and throughput," says Richard Stark, Senior Vice President of Elekta Software. "With a reinvented workflow and user interface, Monaco 5.0 is designed to simplify and accelerate the radiotherapy planning process. Combining these capabilities with a new system architecture based on CPU [central processor unit] and GPU-based [graphics processor unit] technology, Monaco sets a new standard in accuracy and speed."
