Elekta's Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion Earns Top Rank in 2013's Best in KLAS for Radiation Therapy

ATLANTA, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta claimed the top two rankings in the KLAS research firm's recently released 2013 Best in KLAS Awards: Medical Equipment & Infrastructure report*. Elekta's Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ radiosurgery system and Elekta Infinity™ radiation therapy system earned the #1 and #2 rankings, respectively. This is the second consecutive year in which Perfexion has won the Best in KLAS award for radiation therapy.

In the report, Perfexion scored 92.9 out of 100, and 96 percent of customers indicated they would buy again. On a 1 to 9 scale, Perfexion received an 8.7 from respondents for satisfaction with product uptime, the highest score among all vendors rated in the market segment.

"Year after year, Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion is consistently rated as one of the very best solutions in radiation therapy by KLAS respondents," says Jay Hoey, Executive Vice President, Elekta North America. "We are honored by this recognition from our customers and it inspires us to continue refining this product and our entire range of solutions."

KLAS surveys include opinions of thousands of health care professionals
The KLAS awards are based on data from customer surveys of hospital and clinic executives, administrators, physicians, nurses and other directors and managers interacting with health care equipment and infrastructure solutions.

According to KLAS, Best in KLAS designations go to solutions that have excelled in their respective market segments, that show the vendor's leadership in working with customers to resolve issues and match expectations to reality, and that have the broadest operational and clinical impact to health care organizations.

"We're seeing real movement in the market," says Kent Gale, KLAS founder and VP of medical imaging and equipment. "It's a strong indicator of the increasing competitiveness of the vendors as they strive to improve their offerings. And that will ultimately benefit the providers and their patients."
