Elekta to Exhibit New Versa HD Radiotherapy System at Annual Radiation Physics Conference
Date:8/1/2013

INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AAPM Booth #409 – Elekta's Versa HD™* will make its AAPM debut at the association's 55th Annual Meeting and Exhibition, August 4-8 at Indianapolis's Indiana Convention Center. It will be the first time that Elekta showcases Versa HD at a scientific conference in the U.S. since the system's worldwide introduction on March 1. The high-definition Agility™ beam shaping and High Dose Rate mode of Versa HD give clinicians the flexibility to deliver conventional therapies to treat a wide range of small and large tumors throughout the body, while also enabling treatment of highly complex cancers that require extreme targeting precision.

Elekta's theme for AAPM is The Power of Care, a concept that includes technology and people working together to support positive patient outcomes. Versa HD reinforces this new standard of care through its flexibility, speed and accuracy, in addition to a series of packages designed to address unique clinical challenges, making it easy to customize a system that meets the needs of both clinics and patients. Available with Versa HD are packages for spine, breast, prostate, head & neck, and lung.

Other exhibition highlights include:

  • Clarity® Autoscan – Real-time soft tissue tracking for motion during treatment
  • MOSAIQ® Mobile** – Instant access to MOSAIQ from anywhere
  • Flexitron® afterloading platform – Optimized treatment delivery process for brachytherapy
  • Leksell GammaPlan® – Gamma Knife® treatment planning system that offers unmatched speed and accuracy
