Nucletron, an Elekta company, installs Esteya for treating skin cancer in major US center
Date:12/13/2013

NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The first Esteya® electronic brachytherapy system in the United States has been installed at New York's Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Esteya by Nucletron, an Elekta company, is a new approach for skin cancer treatment that relies on a small, high dose rate (HDR) X-ray source to apply high precision radiotherapy directly to the cancer site.

"With support from Elekta, Memorial Sloan-Kettering will lead a multicenter clinical study with the goal to further improve skin cancer treatment," says John Lapre, Executive Vice President, Elekta Brachytherapy. "With its leading role at the forefront of brachytherapy research, the hospital will help advance the quality of patient care and add to the evidence base that caregivers need for their clinical decisions."

Esteya features an efficient workflow, easy patient set-up, and a short, less than three-minute, treatment delivery. The system's compact design and reduced shielding requirements also make treatment with Esteya highly accessible, enabling clinicians to treat lesions virtually anywhere patients are seen in the clinic.

Availability of Esteya in identified markets is subject to regulatory approvals.
