a given level of normal tissue toxicity. Second, Extend is a non-invasive fixation alternative for Gamma Knife."

UVA is among the first U.S. centers to acquire Extend.

The key components of Extend are patient-friendly fixation devices, such as a vacuum assisted bite block and head support with vacuum pillow. Accurate repeat fixation is ensured with a one-time use of a CT box to obtain precise stereotactic reference points, followed by repeat checks using reposition check instruments for each Gamma Knife session.

Elekta will deliver Extend to UVA in mid-December and Dr. Sheehan anticipates treating their first patients in January 2010.

UVA acquired Leksell Gamma Knife® in 1989. In 2007, it was the first U.S. medical center to install Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion, the most advanced radiosurgery solution available. UVA has performed Gamma Knife surgery on about 7,000 patients.

Editor's note: Video of Extend for Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion is available on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkGFwxDsGF8
