September 12, 2008 – Elekta said today its ERGO 1.7.1. for Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) is now available.
VMAT is a new treatment technique offering shorter treatment times with the highest degree of precision. Building upon the experience of Arc Modulation, ERGO for VMAT can be used with a wide range of equipment, including mini and micro MLCs in addition to the Elekta MLCi (10mm) and Beam Modulator (4mm, full interdigitation).
ERGO for VMAT planning will be demonstrated at the ESTRO and ASTRO annual meetings along with Monaco, a next generation inverse planning solution for IMRT, already in clinical use.
Monaco VMAT is a works-in-progress and not yet commercially available in the U.S.
