Elekta Demonstrates Continued Leadership in Image Guidance at 2009 ASTRO Annual Meeting
Date:10/28/2009

CHICAGO, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- At the 51st Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), November 1 - 5 in Chicago, Illinois, Elekta will showcase new tools that demonstrate the IGRT-pioneer's continued leadership in oncology imaging. Highlights include Intuity(TM)*and Symmetry(TM)* advanced image-guidance solutions that build upon the company's existing expertise.

"We are proud to once again introduce practice-changing innovations in imaging that demonstrate Elekta's continued leadership in IGRT," says Tomas Puusepp, President and CEO of Elekta. "Clinicians have long understood that Elekta will provide them with intelligent tools that enhance their workflow and patient's experience and now our collaboration with research partners has resulted in two new imaging products, Intuity and Symmetry."

Intuity, Elekta's next release of IGRT software, will allow clinicians to understand continuous changes in the positional relationships of both tumor and healthy tissues at the time of treatment. For the first time, this unique innovation will allow accurate patient repositioning to ensure target coverage without inadvertently placing organs at risk into the beam path.

Symmetry will be the next generation of image guidance, creating new solutions for motion management. This unique and patented innovation will allow clinicians to accurately quantify the set-up changes required to accommodate 'baseline shifts' (tumor path changes between treatments). Symmetry's use of anatomically correlated guidance is an alternative to gating and offers significantly shorter treatment times with less set-up complexity.

Other meeting highlights

On the show floor, Elekta also plans to highlight innovations that help clinicians deliver superior cancer care:
