Date:7/30/2008

l enable us to design treatment approaches that are more aggressive in killing cancer cells and have fewer side effects."

Dr. Mehta says the implementation of Elekta VMAT at Swedish Cancer Institute has advanced the program's overall mission. "By introducing VMAT technology today, we have continued to build on the Swedish Cancer Institute's rich tradition of innovation in cancer care. We were among the first to begin using Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) utilizing cone Beam CT technology to improve setup accuracy and treatment precision, and now we've begun treating with VMAT. As the largest and most comprehensive cancer treatment program in the Pacific Northwest, improving patient care is our mission and we work daily to make that a reality."

About Elekta VMAT

The speed and precision of Elekta VMAT is made possible by the simultaneous manipulation of the gantry position and speed, the multileaf collimator leaves, the dose rate and the collimator angle, all while the radiation beam is on. In addition, Elekta VMAT allows the flexibility of one arc, two arcs, sub-arc or a combination.

To ensure the accuracy of this highly conformal treatment, Elekta VMAT uses daily ultra low dose 3D volumetric imaging via Elekta VolumeView(TM). VolumeView imaging is accomplished in under two minutes, complementing the speed of treatments. For additional information, visit http://www.elekta.com/vmat .
