Elekta to Highlight Latest Gamma Knife Surgery Innovations at Annual Neurosurgery Conference
Date:10/15/2010

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta will showcase updates to its Leksell GammaPlan® 10.0* treatment planning software for Leksell Gamma Knife® and the Extend™ program for Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ at the 2010 Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Annual Meeting, October 16-21 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. The Extend program dramatically broadens the types of cases for which clinicians can use Perfexion.

On the show floor, Elekta booth #109 will feature hands-on demonstrations of Extend, which combines patient-friendly head immobilization technology and stereotactic localization methods to permit hypofractionated Gamma Knife treatments for larger tumors or lesions close to critical structures located in the brain, skull base and other head and neck regions.

Updates to GammaPlan 10.0 include the two optional add-ons Inverse Planning and Convolution. Inverse Planning provides a fast, easy solution for Gamma Knife surgery planning, providing more reliable dose planning. The Convolution add-on is designed to increase confidence in the dose distribution and helps provide the optimum dose for heterogeneities in the skull.

Other meeting highlights

A leader and pioneer in neurosurgical solutions for decades, Elekta also will exhibit products that have set the standard for precision and efficiency in neurosurgical interventions and diagnosis, including:

  • Elekta Axesse™, a fully integrated stereotactic system that combines 3D target visualization at time of treatment, 6D sub-millimeter robotic patient positioning and high-resolution beam shaping, making it a versatile treatment system perfectly suited for spine radiosurgery and neuro-oncology.
