Elekta's Monaco 5.0 Consolidates Treatment Planning Capabilities in One System

September 24, 2013 — Elekta has introduced Monaco 5.0, which consolidates support for clinically useful delivery techniques in a single treatment planning system, and features refinements to planning speed and precision.

"This latest Monaco release brings together the best capabilities of Elekta's treatment planning portfolio into a single planning system to achieve a greater level of convenience and clinical versatility for the radiation oncology team," says Todd Powell, Executive Vice President of Elekta Software. "And, with a new system architecture, sophisticated treatment plans can now be developed with speeds often not attainable with previous planning systems."

Relying on an advanced Monte Carlo dose engine, Monaco is now a comprehensive treatment planning system, supporting the full breadth of radiation therapy techniques, including volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), image guided radiation therapy (IMRT), and 3-D conformal radiation therapy. The system is equipped for advanced stereotactic therapies, such as stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT), with added planning support for specialized beam shaping devices, including circular cones.
