Elekta's New Line of Stereotactic Treatment Solutions is Redefining Excellence in Stereotaxy, a Case at a Time
Date:4/24/2008

ATLANTA and CHICAGO, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta, a global leader in minimally invasive neurosurgery will feature its latest line of stereotactic solutions at the 76th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons' (AANS), April 26 - May 1 in Chicago, Illinois. Highlights include Leksell Gamma Knife(R) Perfexion(TM) and Elekta Axesse(TM), two stereotactic treatment solutions that are creating new possibilities for the most challenging cases.

Now in clinical use in twenty locations across North America, Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion combines the proven precision of the revolutionary Leksell Gamma Knife, with a three hundred percent expansion in clinical reach to treat a wider range of targets faster and more efficiently than ever before. The system's unique geometric and dosimetric design simultaneously administers hundreds of beams of low-intensity radiation that converge to deliver a single, therapeutic dose of radiation with pin-point accuracy to the most difficult targets; while integrated treatment planning and delivery streamlines the radiosurgery process to treat even multiple brain lesions in a single automated procedure.

Fully optimized for neurosurgery, Elekta Axesse is ideally suited for stereotactic radiosurgery or radiotherapy of the spine and body, providing total treatment control with proven technology that minimizes time-on-table and maximizes treatment capacity. And with volumetric 3D imaging, six-degree patient positioning, and fine-resolution beam shaping of Elekta Axesse make it a versatile, crossover treatment solution for neuro-oncology.

"Elekta is committed to supporting the neurosurgeon by providing highly refined tools that support specific clinical objectives," says Joseph K. Jachinowski, President and CEO of Elekta North America. "Technology that is perfectly aligned to the physician and the case at hand naturally results in faster treatments, increased productivity, higher profitability, and most of all, more quality time for the patient."

In addition to its latest line of radiosurgery and radiotherapy solutions as well as cases studies highlighting their clinical use, Elekta will exhibit new accessories for the world's most widely used stereotactic product line, Leksell Stereotactic System(R), and Elekta Neuromag(R), the world's most advanced magnetoencephalography (MEG) system.
