Elekta Introduces Groundbreaking Image Guidance Capabilities Integrated with Versa HD Cancer Treatment System
Date:9/11/2013

CRAWLEY, England, Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated with Versa HD™ linear accelerator, Elekta has introduced new intra-fraction imaging capabilities within its X-ray Volume Imaging (XVI) system. During treatment, XVI now provides the tools to monitor and manage internal motion, supporting the clinician's efforts to increase therapeutic doses delivered to the tumor while reducing healthy tissue exposure.

"Regardless of patient immobilization, both the tumor and adjacent critical structures may move during treatment delivery. Historically, this has presented a significant challenge in delivering highly targeted treatments," says Dee Mathieson, Senior Vice President, Oncology Business Line Management. "Imaging in real time as the treatment is delivered demonstrates yet another leap forward in Elekta's long history of pioneering image guidance capabilities."

"On a second by second basis, the precise location of the tumor and sensitive healthy structures can now be visualized," she adds "helping clinicians accurately deliver dose to the tumor while minimizing normal tissue exposure. It is a major advantage for patient safety and clinical effectiveness."

Uniquely, Elekta's XVI, which is also available on other Elekta radiotherapy delivery systems, includes 2D, 3D and 4D intra-fraction imaging to support live imaging during sophisticated delivery techniques, such as Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT).

The new capabilities within XVI include seamless integration with Elekta's MOSAIQ® image-enabled oncology information system. XVI and MOSAIQ work in harmony to deliver elegant, highly automated imaging workflow for improved control, efficiency and performance. With image data available within the Oncology Information System, patient images, setup and correction data can b
