Elekta’s Synergy Leads the Way in IGRT

The concept of IGRT, pioneered by Elekta, and the creation of Elekta Synergy, was driven by the need to visualize internal structures, including soft tissues, in three dimensions within the reference frame of the treatment system and at the time of treatment.

Designed to inspire clinical confidence, Elekta Synergy is an advanced digital linear accelerator and first platform to enable clinicians to image and treat patients simultaneously. Since its introduction in 2002, Elekta Synergy as been installed at numerous cancer centers worldwide, and according to the company, has made a clear difference, to the benefit of patients, as well as the satisfaction of clinicians.

The combination of high-resolution imaging, taken in 3-D and at the time of treatment – combined with workflow solutions developed to be applicable on a routine basis – is described as ‘4-D Adaptive’ and is the Elekta IGRT solution.
