Elekta Unveils New Neuroscience Solution for Leksell Gamma Knife at AANS

April 16, 2012 — Elekta is revealing innovations for Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion this week at the 2012 American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting in Miami.

"Once again, AANS will give us the opportunity to demonstrate to neurological surgeons that Gamma Knife radiosurgery is a continually evolving technique," says Jay Hoey, executive vice president, Elekta North America. "The latest example is the capability to exchange information, such as treatment plans, treatment record and protocols, both pre- and post-treatment, putting electronic medical records at your fingertips and allowing you to see all of your treatment statistics in one convenient dashboard. The result is a better flow of patient care and improved use of time and resources."

In addition to the latest product enhancements, Elekta will highlight characteristics of Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion, including its dedication to intracranial cases, complete solution integration, "shrink-wrap" dose conformity and proven clinical efficacy. Demonstrations of the system will emphasize that Perfexion is designed to minimize risk of human error and radiation toxicity, while optimizing accuracy and dose conformance.

At the meeting Elekta is also exhibiting several other solutions that improve the management of neurological and neurosurgical cases, including:

  • Extend System for frameless, multi-session hypofractionation Gamma Knife radiosurgery;
  • Elekta Neuromag Triux magnetoencephalography (MEG) system;
  • Leksell Stereotactic System for functional neurosurgery; and
  • Leksell SurgiPlan 10, Elekta's image-based neurosurgical planning software specifically designed for the Leksell Stereotactic System.
