Elekta's Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion Earns Nearly Perfect Score in 2011 KLAS Radiation Therapy Report

ATLANTA, Dec. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With a score of 94.4 out of 100, Elekta's Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ is "practically perfect in every way," ranking at the top among six advanced radiation therapy systems, according to KLAS research firm's recently released customer survey, Radiation Therapy 2011: A Dose of New Technology. The Elekta Infinity™ radiation treatment system garnered the #2 ranking with a score of 84.4, improving its score over the 2010 report.

The 2011 KLAS report – the result of interviews with 213 U.S. provider organizations – referenced respondents' regard for the Perfexion system's technological sophistication, making "treating very complicated tumors in a difficult spot easy for providers," and for the radiosurgery platform's unprecedented uptime statistics. The report summarized customer opinion by noting: "The speed, accuracy, reliability, and sophistication of the treatments all came together for the Gamma Knife Perfexion to earn the highest score in the study by a 10-point margin."

Gamma Knife® surgery is a gentler alternative to traditional brain surgery for illnesses such as metastatic disease – cancer that has traveled to the brain from elsewhere in the body. The system delivers thousands of low-intensity radiation beams to one or more targets in a single session. Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion provides even greater speed and ease of use than previous versions, especially for treating multiple metastases.

Supported by three decades of clinical practice in both neurosurgery and radiation oncology departments, more than 50,000 patients each year are treated with Gamma Knife surgery.
