Date:5/12/2010

ATLANTA and STOCKHOLM, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- A record 332 oral and poster presentations comprise the scientific program for Elekta's 15th International Leksell Gamma Knife® Society Meeting, which convenes May 16-20 at the Athenaeum InterContinental Hotel (Athens, Greece). The most ever submitted in the society's 21-year history, the presentations also will be posted on the Elekta website after the meeting. Attendance at the conference is estimated at 500, including neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists and other medical specialists from around the world.

A major focus of the upcoming meeting will be presentations discussing how Elekta's fifth generation Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ system is benefiting radiosurgery practices.

"After two decades in clinical practice, Gamma Knife surgery continues to be the preferred method for minimally invasive treatment of many brain disorders, particularly metastases," says Dan Leksell, MD, son of Lars Leksell and Senior Advisor at Elekta. "Leksell Gamma Knife has evolved to provide increasingly greater degrees of precision and a more streamlined workflow. At the upcoming meeting, we will hear how Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion is helping patients, and adding new indications through the Extend™ program that weren't possible to treat before this system's introduction."
