Group Florence Nightingale Increases Radiosurgery Profile with Acquisition of Turkey's First Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion System
Date:9/19/2012

ISTANBUL, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ – Elekta's most advanced Gamma Knife® platform – became Turkey's fifth Gamma Knife system, beginning clinical operation at Group Florence Nightingale's Comprehensive Cancer Center (Istanbul) on May 25. The Cancer Center's Prof. Dr. Talat Kiris used Perfexion for the first time by treating a 15-year-old Iraqi boy with a partially resected skull base tumor.

Gamma Knife radiosurgery is a patient friendly alternative to traditional brain surgery for illnesses such as metastatic disease, arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and meningiomas. With pinpoint accuracy, the system delivers up to thousands of low-intensity radiation beams to one or more targets in a single session. Perfexion provides even greater speed and ease of use than previous models.

According to Prof. Dr. Kiris, both he and the Group's administration were strongly committed to acquiring Perfexion for the Comprehensive Cancer Center due to the proven effectiveness of Gamma Knife surgery and to the added sophistication of the Perfexion system.

"For years, Gamma Knife surgery has the accepted gold standard for the treatment of many intracranial indications," Prof. Dr. Kiris observes. "In addition, compared to previous Gamma Knife models, Perfexion dramatically streamlines the radiosurgery workflow and expands the treatable volume with a new collimator. Treatment delivery to one or more tumors in a single session also is greatly facilitated in Perfexion, and allows treatment of a wider range of targets faster, more efficiently and safer than before.

"For me, Perfexion is a neurosurgeon's tool," he continues. "It's very easy to use and if you know brain anatomy very well, the system software helps you a lot."
