Elekta's Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion is Ranked 2011's Best in KLAS for Radiation Therapy
Date:6/24/2011

ATLANTA, June 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta's Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ earned the number one ranking in the KLAS research firm's recently released 2011 Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards: Medical Equipment & Infrastructure* report. Perfexion received Best in KLAS in the radiation therapy category.

In the report, Perfexion scored 92.9 out of 100 and 95 percent of customers indicated they would buy again. On a 1 to 9 scale, Perfexion received an 8.6 from respondents for satisfaction with product uptime, the highest score among all vendors rated in the market segment.

"Leksell Gamma Knife has been the gold standard for radiosurgery for many years," says Jay Hoey, Executive Vice President, Elekta North America. "Our latest generation solution, Perfexion, was designed and developed based on the insight of expert Leksell Gamma Knife users. The Best in KLAS designation recognizes not only the sophistication of this radiosurgery platform, but also the contributions of our clinical partners in making it a reality."

Elekta posted record-breaking sales of Leksell Gamma Knife systems in 2010, confirming the growing demand for the system as a safe, effective modality to treat brain metastases and other cranial disorders.

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 precisely delivers up to 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 w
