Dublin Hospital is Site of 1,000th Oncentra Brachy for Cancer Treatment Planning

Nucletron, An Elekta Company, Reaches Milestone With Brachytherapy Treatment Planning Software

April 26, 2012 — St. Vincent's Private Hospital in Dublin, Ireland, has installed Oncentra Brachy, becoming the site of the 1,000th brachytherapy treatment planning software manufactured by Nucletron, an Elekta company. Oncentra was introduced in the global market in 2008 and is Nucletron's software platform for radiotherapy treatment planning.

Oncentra Brachy is a comprehensive and easy-to-use software solution that includes advanced algorithms to ensure efficient and accurate brachytherapy treatment planning. It fits seamlessly into Nucletron's solutions for brachytherapy imaging and treatment delivery, and can be seamlessly integrated with Oncentra External Beam with IMRT/VMAT (intensity-modulated radiation therapy/volumetric modulated arc therapy) and proton planning capabilities.

"We selected Nucletron's Oncentra Brachy software because it is state-of-the-art, user friendly and ensures precise cancer treatment," says Michael Redmond, CEO of St. Vincent's. "And because our hospital operates Elekta treatment machines as well, we hope to have a mutually beneficial relationship with both Nucletron and Elekta."

The combined offering of Nucletron and Elekta solutions presents a formidable range of radiotherapy planning and delivery technologies that will benefit both patients and healthcare providers, adds Patrick Greally, Elekta Ireland business unit managing director.
