Elekta Receives Radiation Therapy Order from Belgian Hospital

November 21, 2007 – Elekta announced that is has received an order to supply its Elekta Synergy S advanced radiation therapy technology and information management software to the University of Liège Hospital in Belgium, aiming to expand and improve treatment capacity.

The system, slated for installation in March 2008, is reportedly capable of supplying high doses of radiation while minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. The image-guided robotic digital linear accelerator combines integrated 3D imaging abilities with powerful high-resolution radiation delivery.

At CHU Liège, Elekta Synergy S will reportedly enable specialists to perform both stereotactic radiotherapy and radiosurgery throughout the body. The Elekta Synergy S provides 2D and ultra low dose 3D image-guided accuracy and highly conformal beam shaping. This is said to enable Radiation Oncology staff to use extremely precise and accurate techniques on small tumors close to critical structures, while at the same time being flexible enough to handle a large majority of the cases presented in a radiation therapy department, according to the company.
