Nucletron, an Elekta company, to Debut New Flexitron Brachytherapy Afterloading Platform at 2013 American Brachytherapy Society Meeting
Date:4/18/2013

NEW ORLEANS, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At the 2013 American Brachytherapy Society (ABS) meeting April 18-20 in New Orleans, Nucletron, an Elekta company, (booth #300), will introduce its newly redesigned Flexitron® remote afterloading platform. Flexitron emphasizes safety and efficiency in the brachytherapy workflow, increasing the clinician's confidence that execution of all workflow steps will proceed as planned for brachytherapy / treatment delivery.

Key to the new Flexitron are multiple advances that optimize the treatment delivery process. One of these features is an intuitive layout that efficiently leads the user through the treatment delivery workflow. Flexitron also includes transfer tubes that all are of the same 1000 mm length, reducing ambiguity; a "reference zero" at the entrance of the catheter; a dwell position number that directly reflects the dwell position distance; and forward stepping source positioning.

Flexitron features scalable configurations with 10, 20 or 40 channels and is compatible with Nucletron applicators, Oncentra® Brachy and the HDR Real-Time Prostate Solution.

"We are very pleased to introduce the new Flexitron afterloading platform to the North American market," says Maurits Wolleswinkel , VP Business Line Management, for Elekta's brachytherapy business area. "We believe Flexitron afterloading is revolutionizing safety and workflow in the modern brachytherapy practice, and since it is designed around an upgradable architecture, Flexitron represents a truly safe investment for the future."

In addition to the newly released Flexitron, Elekta showcased the depth and breadth of its brachytherapy solutions, including Oncentra Brachy planning system, a fully developed line of body site specific applicators, and dedicated Real Time Prostate Solutions.
