Elekta to Showcase Cancer Management Products at Joint Radiation Physics Annual Meeting

July 27, 2011 —Elekta will demonstrate not only the depth and breadth of its offerings, but its commitment to maximize safety in radiation therapy delivery at the joint 2011 AAPM/COMP meeting. The conference will convene July 31 - August 4 in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.

Spanning the entire radiation therapy workflow, Elekta provides solutions to ensure set-up integrity, precise control of radiation delivery and accurate recording of treatment data.  

Visitors to the Elekta exhibit will be offered a free "safety kit," a USB flash drive that contains white papers and case studies that explain in detail the company’s approach to radiation medicine safety.

Some of their products on display will include:

·  Advanced, integrated treatment planning capabilities, including Monaco with volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), Mosaiq Evaluate and Locate

·  Mosaiq Oncology Information System, the first comprehensive oncology electronic medical record (EMR) certified for meaningful use

·  Agility, Elekta's prototype multi-leaf collimator, featuring 160 five mm leaves across the full 40 x 40cm field

·  Sophisticated, comprehensive stereotactic radiation therapy solutions that combine the most advanced planning, image guidance, soft tissue visualization, patient positioning and immobilization, and delivery technology available

During the conference, Elekta will host a Leksell GammaPlan luncheon Monday, Aug. 1 at 12:30 p.m. and an Elekta Customer luncheon Tuesday, Aug. 2 at 12:30 p.m.
